  Dutch Snow Leopard Cho Oyu 2005 Expedition Update


photo@Jason McMillan

 

Update: The team of the Dutch Cho Oyu expedition 2005 has chosen to go to Mount Everest for their acclimatization prior to going to Cho Oyu. They want to go to ABC at 6400 meter. On the 25th they arrived at the north side base camp of Mount Everest.

 

26 April: The plan for tomorrow is to go to intermediate camp at 5700 meter and the next day to ABC to spend the night. The first time at this altitude will be hard for most of the team members. But first they have a rest day: they relax, check their packs for tomorrow and do some shopping in the supermarket. It is hard to believe but there is a real shopping mall on 5200 meter at the entrance of base camp! At the end of the day there is some snowfall. The next dispatch will be in four days because they leave the BGAN in BC.
