    Quest For Everest - Day 5

    December 13, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    After our 8am breakfast we left Namche Bazar and headed to Phortse (3810m) an elevation of 420 metres.

    It was a long hard 7 hours, the first half was generally quite flat with an incline at the end. The second half was all the way down to the river so that meant we had to go all the way back up, again we did baby steps, the only way to achieve the goal.

    Checked into our lodge and from now there are only outside hole toilets and electricity is powered by solar do goodbye Facebook for a good week. Electricity is also charged at 500rs (5$) for one hour so I’ve already charged by battery pack, if it runs out then so be it.

    Trust me to pick this day to get the squits!!

    We’ve all been tested for oxygen levels tonight, everyone’s ok and mine was 85%, these tiny lungs are working well :)
