19 Oct - Today the team made the big move up to Tagnag 4300m (14,100'). We traveled along a beautiful, freezing river to a monastery, where we learned. (1/2) that today was a "lucky day" Everyone is feeling well and going an excellent job of acclimatizing. Most all the members are enjoying a room with a bed tonight

18 Oct - The team descended from Chatra, 4200m (13,800') to Kothey 3500m (11,500'). It was a wonderful hike down hill and along a beautiful glacial fed river. In Kothey, we were treated to warm showers, and a huge dinner of pasta, potatoes, vegetables, and a yak burger! we got our first views of Mera Peak today!

17 Oct - Big day! The team hiked up and over Zetra la pass 4600m (15,100') to Chatra 4200m (13,800). This was a big jump in elevation and team members could all feel the air getting thinner. The reward for the teams hard work was a tea house with amazing views and an actual wood floor!

16 Oct - Today we moved camp up to 4040m (13,250'). The trek up took a little over 3 hours and we were treated to beautiful views of the valley below with clouds moving in and out below us all day.

15 Oct - Today we take a "rest" day. We need to give our bodies a chance to acclimatize to the high elevation so we hike to 3,720m (12,200') then return to camp for the night. Climb high, sleep low. Everyone us feeling great!

14 Oct:  After the flight to Lukla, we hiked 3.5 hours to a small, rustic tea house at 3,320m (10,900). We are all happy have great weather and be away from the busy Everest Base Camp trek. The food and camp are great!

We are off  the road to catch Lukla flight from Ramechhap as there is lots of traffic from Kathmandu airport due to Nepal's main festival coming up. Now we are at Lukla. We will update you more, please stay tune. Thanks.

12 Oct: The Baruntse - Mera Peak Team is arriving and the expedition is starting now. Hooray!
