Dean and his client Mark are on their way to climb up Cho Oyu in Tibet. Dean sent an update of their journey so far:
Yesterday we left Kathmandu around 4:30am and made out way towards the boarder of China in Tibet. The road out from Kathmandu is rough with many landslides that we crossed as we approached the boarder. When we reached the Chinese boarder we had to transfer all of our gear and walk across the Friendship bridge into Tibet China since the road was blocked by many trucks waiting to cross. Porters helped lug all of the supplies from Nepal into Tibet where it was loaded on another truck and bus and we continued on our way. The transfer took about 3-4 hours. We got on our way again and we arrived at Nyalam a small village in Tibet at 12,500′. We spent the night and will spend another day here acclimatizing before we move on. Tomorrow we will continue towards Tingri 14,000′ where we will spend 2 days before heading to the Chinese base camp. All the 10 members of the expedition are doing well and are excited to get to base camp and start climbing.
