A rough climb to Pangboche (3930m)

April 12th, 2008

Today’s “only 4 hour” ascent to Pangboche turned out to be pretty rough on the group. Five our of seven have so far had digestive problems (throwing up or diarrhea), and we’re all feeling really tired. My appetite and digestive system are still fantastic, but I do have some headaches.
Thupten took us to see the 600 year old Buddhist Monastery in Pangboche. Other than that there’s not much else to do, as the clouds are obscuring any views, it rains occasionally and it’s getting pretty cold.
Other than the views on the hike, the highlight of my morning was a happy, friendly puppy that followed us through the whole village of Phortse (which took us a while since it was uphill going) and wanted to be petted and played with. She even provided extra entertainment when she started chasing a baby yak…

7pm update
Make that 7 out of 7. I just hope the diarrhea doesn’t make me get up too often at night - it’s damn cold out there…
