    Quest For Everest - Day 7

    December 15, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today was a rest day in Dingboche (4410m) although we did a small hike of a 300m elevation and back down to acclimatise.

    A couple of guys have come off the diamox which is worrying. They don’t like the side effects of pins and needles and headaches. I take ibuprofen at the same time, not had a headache yet. Tomorrow is a big day so if the guys get I’ll you can’t just get back on the diamox, you have to get lower.

    The strangest moment so far is that there is a snooker hall here, actually full size snooker tables 4410 metres high in the Himalayas. A very surreal and special moment I will never forget.

    We ventured outside after dinner into -12c to look at the stars, being in the middle of nowhere we are blessed by seeing so many stars and even the Milky Way, a sight I’ll never forget and no doubt never see again in my lifetime.
