20th Apr - Kongma La
Well, after a lovely 2 days rest at Dingboche, we ascended towards the Kongma La pass, only to be caught in a bit of a snowstorm. We camped by a lake, but no views!
Fortunately, the morning dawned blue skied and we continued up to our high camp, where I'm writing this. A stunning spot with views of Ama Dablam and Lhotse to name but a few.
Tommorrow we will nip up Pokalde and camp here for a second night, at aroun 5550m, which is higher than basecamp.
We're all itching toi get there now, even though we've bumped into some dubious characters on their way there who we will be trying to avoid at all costs on the mountain.
