  Tibet Team Acclimatizes at Tingri

13 April -

Today is an acclimatization day in Tingri.

TSC awoke to an overcast morning with the streets, homes and cars of Tingri covered in a light dusting of snow. Snow was still softly falling as TSC convened for breakfast (a tasty noodle affair) but stopped shortly thereafter. Albeit a little snowy, the weather is mild with no wind; being conducive for team members spending a lazy day acclimatizing in Tingri. Although denied the first views of Mt Qomolangma (often available from nearby Tingri) team members are more than content to enjoy the journey, as the Mountain will slowly reveal herself to the team in her own good time.

12 April 2015 -

Good morning from Nylam! After two days at 3,700 meters above sea level the whole group is feeling great. This morning we are making our way to Tingri at 4,300 meters. It will be our final stop before we arrive at Base Camp.

It is quite cold here, but we have gotten bright and sunny days to explore the town and take an acclimatization hike on a nearby hill. From these hills we were able to see the majestic, snow capped peaks of the Himalaya. This is truly a beautiful area. The above picture of our group (less those individuals who are in Lhasa) was taken at one of our first vantage points during our hike. With everyone in good spirits we look forward to exploring Tingri!

Today Team Summit Climb (TSC) roused relatively early (8am for breakfast) to ensure an early departure from Nyalam for Tingri. The purpose (in which the team succeeded) being to secure better accommodation in Tingri. The morning skies were brisk and clear. The scenic drive to Tingri climbed up to the +5,000m high pass and then fell to the Tibetan high plateau below. TSC and all the gear, arrive safe and sound in Tingri in time for lunch. Everyone then took to explore Tingri in the steps of Mallory, Tilman and Shipton. Cloud cover blocked view of Mt Everest. TSC will pass another rest day in Tingri tomorrow to acclimatize before heading to base camp the day after.
