A fast energising hike up from 3490 mts to 3900mts today. Saw the everest in its splendour. Weather was awesome and so were the spirits. Back for lunch now and then some shopping.

“Sangeeta did great during the 2nd rotation and had an active rest day yesterday at Camp 2 (21500 ft). Today, the team is planning to touch Camp 3 at 23000ft on the lhotse face and head back to Camp 2 for the night. The route is steep all the way. There is a lot of ice which is going to increase the challenge. I believe all your training and physical strength gets you up to Camp 3 and after that its your mind and the spur of your convictions which propel you to 29035ft…All in all its good fun.! Go Sangeeta go !!!”
