15th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the
Lobuche ( 4,930m) - Gorak-Shep ( 5,200m) Passing the
weather is still rainy and with show all day long, so
we decided to cut our journey and get just to
Gorak-Shep, just a 3 hours walk from Lobuche. We
want to take advantage of the comfort of the
last lodge. Lodges are rustic places spaced
along the road to Everest. It is also another
opportunity for our acclimatization, because above
5,000m there is just 50% of oxygen compared to what
you find and sea level, so it is very important to
give a chance to our bodies to adapt slowly.
the battery of our notebook is dead, so we could not
send any pictures today. We will have more time
to send news from Base Camp.
