Slowly we are gaining altitude, but it’s still a long way to Base Camp. Basically we are back at Kathmandu altitude, but we already walked for three days. The trail is beautiful and we are absolutely alone here; the weather is hot and humid though. To escape the heat we are taking cool off is the many waterfalls and an occasional plunge in the river. It’s still three days to Sama; the last village before Base Camp. The whole team is doing fine and we are enjoying the walk in.
