3rd April , 2012 - Acclimatization day - Nagakarsang hill

Today was a big day; it was time to reach over 5000 meters. After having our morning porridge, we left the lodge around seven o clocks. The goal was Nagakarsang hill on 5100 meters. The trek was very challenging with a steep narrow path to follow. To walk on this high altitude is a very strange feeling. You walk between 30-50 meters and then you need to stop and breathe. We came to the top after almost three hours. That felt so great!! We didn’t have a good view because the weather and turned rather bad. On the way down it was snowing a lot! Jimmy got a close encounter with snow for the first time. These acclimatization days are necessary to get used to a higher altitude.

Yesterday was Caroline’s birthday. She got a lovely chocolate cake and a whole restaurant that sang “Happy birthday”.
