Yesterday night we went saftely to bed guarded by our three yaks. In the morning there was ice on the yak’s water buckets. Washing up was slightly cold but Swedish people are used to cold climate. But already at breakfast the sun started to warm us.

The aim of today’s trek was to acclimatize to heights above 5000 meters. We did that by climbing Nangakarsang Peak 5050 meters. The climbing went above our expectations only during the last 200 steep meters the thin air made the climbing tough and slow.

We all feel very well and look forward to the trek to Lobuche tomorrow. We are getting closer…
