Lobuche East & Island Peak Expedition

Leader: Tom Horrocks

13th May

Congratulations to the team who have summited Lobuche!

11th May

Yesterday Tom & Tanya trekked up to Lobuche and were met by Lee & David who had trekked over from Gokyo. Today the team did some skills training and went for a short walk. Tomorrow they will ascend to high camp at 5290m, with the intention to make their summit bid on Sunday. The winds are looking good and there is a small amount of snow forecast, so fingers crossed it stays that way.

SUMMIT SUCCESS! Congratulations to John and Tom who reached the summit of Island Peak early yesterday morning. Tanya decided to turn around about an hour into the summit day. The team are now down in Dengboche and will head down to Namche in the next day or so.

Tanya and Tom are continuing on to link up with our Lobuche team so will head further up the Khumbu valley after a day to rest in Dengboche.

30th April

The team arrived at the bustling village of Namche Bazaar yesterday. Everyone is looking strong and acclimatising well so far. They will be having a rest day today, so might take a wander up to the Everest View Hotel or Khunde to aid their acclimatisation. They will also make time to check out Namche’s finest bakeries and coffees before heading up the valley. There has been rain for the past day or two so they are looking forward to some sun and improving views of the higher peaks.
