11th April , 2012 - Setting up Base Camp

The entire base camp is located on the glacier: debris of rock on top slowly moving mass of hard ice. First night at base camp was not so bad. Most of us had good night sleep with some exceptions. Many a times when you hit high altitude you might not get good sleep, but we are very well acclimatized to the surrounding since we are in the mountains for last more than two weeks. Early morning we set out to erect communication tent. Thanks to Pune based Gypsy tents we got the satellite tent. With good teamwork the tent was up within 15 minutes.

Afterwards some volunteered to make access to the tent while others were busy to set up communication devices.
