Dispatch 4/1/2000:

Title: The day ended in Lete, at 2400 meters of altitude

Weather: Sun and Heat (+35 Cs / + 5C)

Expedition Location: Resting in Lete after an pleasant day in which the group gained 1000 meters of altitude.

Next objective: Rest in Lete to regroup to all the team.

We started in Kopchepani and walked in the direction of our objective: Lete. Although we climbed almost 1000 meters in altitude, it was quite pleasant.  This is thanks to the fact that the route begins to near Annapurna. Today, we saw the path to Thulobugin that we will need to follow in about two or three days. Tomorrow, (Sunday) we will remain in Lete, so that the porters can rest and to give time for the stragglers to reunited with the group. The weather is fantastic; quite fresh at night and very warm by the day. For that reason, we took advantage of the coolness and walked in the morning only until 1:00 in the afternoon to stop and eat during the hottest hours. The latest meteorological situation seemed to get worse, but the night has appeared with a sky full of stars. The barometer indicates a reduction of pressure which is the reason why we did not wait for great changes: Sun with temperatures of up to 35 Cs during the day and not less than 5 Cs during the night.  Although, we are still at only 2,400 meters. After the rest day, we will climb to Chhoya (3,600 meters) which is not on the famous Annapurna circuit.

  • Annapurna Spring 2000: 4/2/2000

Title: Day of rest

Weather: Sun and Heat (35 Cs) (-5 C)

Expedition Location: Lete, enjoying a rest day and recovering.

Next objective: Beginning of the three last stages towards the Camping Base.

The expeditionary members have dedicated the day to rest and regroup the porters. The rest will serve to save up energy for the last three stages that separate us from Annapurna Base Camp. This additional energy and the time becoming acclimated at 3000 meters will help us in the coming weeks. Joaquim "Jake" Molins, spokesman of the group is happy with the progress.

EverestNews.com has added a Spring 2000 Annapurna Page where EverestNews.com will report News on this expedition and other Annapurna News.
