Island Peak & EBC Trek
Departs: 12th April 2018
Leader: Neil Phillips
The team say their goodbyes as they go their separate ways.
With Ama Dablam in the background the Island Peak team stretch their legs and acclimatise on Chhukhung Ri.
Overlooking Dingboche, with Island Peak and Lhotse in the distance.
On our acclimatisation walk above Dinboche. A stunning location in the heart of the Khumbu.
The team have now arrived at Dingboche at 4410m. They will have an acclimatisation day tomorrow before going their separate ways. The Classic Everest trek group will head up to Lobuche and Gorak Shep before visiting base camp and the Island Peak team will carry on to Chhukhung and then to Island Peak base camp.
The team all arrived safely into Kathmandu and made the flight to Lukla without any delays. They even had the pleasure of sharing the flight with celebs Ben Fogle and Victoria Pendleton.
The weather has been good while they are heading up the Khumbu valley towards Namche.
The team bumped into an old Adventure Peaks friend, Matt Williams, who climbed Everest in 2008 with Adventure Peaks.
The team are doing fantastically well making exceptional time today trekking into Namche. Tomorrow is an acclimatisation day followed by a look around Namche.
