Expedition on the South face of the Mt. Nuptse is beginning
Our expedition is beginning !!!!! So, now we are in
Kathmandu. We are OK! But we are a little bit tired.
Today, it was so long day and night. We left
Moscow yesterday at 18:50 PM and we arrived in Kathmandu just today
morning at 08:00 AM. So, it was about 14 hours without stopping and with
change a planes in Dhaka.
And also we had to fly about one hour around Kathmandu with
possibility to make landing. The pilots told us because it was bad weather
in the airport area.
Today was a Sunday... so it was not possible to
do a lot of things.
Tomorrow will be a very busy day... in the morning we are going to buy
food and some equipment. In the afternoon we will go to the Ministry of
the Tourism to get a permit ascent briefing. We will fly to Lukla on the
Tuesday, 16 in the morning.
In this evening we met with Fabrizio and his partner named Billy. They are
Americans. Both guys are so nice. Our Base Camps will be located at 5200 meters and we will be able to associate there without
problems. We will be feeling not so lonely.
But anyway we will be climbing different routes. They are not decided yet
which route they will climb. Maybe a new one. The have a good high
altitude experience. They leave Kathmandu tomorrow to Lukla and then we
will meet in Dingboche or in Base Camp of Nuptse.
