Summiting Chukung Ri
We all reached the summit of Chukung Ri today at 5565m. The weather was good with only a few high clouds, so the views of Pumori and Makalu were stunning. Everyone is a little tired after a long day, but all are well and in good spirits as we settle down for the evening. There is no shortage of food and no sign of anyone's appetite being affected by the altitude! Tomorrow we head up to Island Peak Basecamp. The sherpa team have already gone on ahead and have set up a good basecamp ready for our arrival, and we aim to try for the summit on Tuesday.
