Just short of basecamp

Well, the plan was to make it to basecamp today, but the weather gods had other plans. Apparently with the dirt road into basecamp not being in awesome shape, our “tour guide” did not want to drive in the dark on muddy roads in mini-vans. What a wuss!!!

As a result, we stopped in a town called Tingri, which everyone in the group whom had been here before was not happy about it. Apparently it’s been quite the dump of a town in the past. Call it luck, call it what you want, we ended up in the “new” building of the hotel which means we have nicer beds and a bathroom. The plumbing leaves something to be desired, but I’m not complaining about another night in a bed.

With an early start tomorrow we should hopefully be to basecamp by lunch!
