Another day, and another step closer to base camp. A bit of news mostly from the Nepal side. I post these headlines on the tracker page everyday and update with the latest as I get them and then cover the newest headlines in the next blog post.

 

 

These are the latest:

  • First teams are now at EBC-Nepal in very cold conditions, -18C/0F

  • EverestLink Internet is being setup at EBC-Nepal for WiFi, not working as of Friday, April 5, 2019
