After being delayed for a day because of some illness, the Freedom Climb team reached the small village of Phakding, their first destination on the trail to Mt. Everest Base Camp. The team hiked for about five hours before reaching the village and setting up camp. Everyone is in good spirits and settling in for the night.
Tomorrow will be a longer and more difficult day for the team. They are hiking to Namche, the next village on the way to Everest. The hike will be long, hot and uphill. Tonight they are resting well and gearing up for tomorrow.
“Tomorrow is going to be a long day because we hike from here up to Namche… it’s going to be long and hot and dusty and all uphill. But the good news is that everybody’s going to be feeling so much better tomorrow that we’ll be in good shape.” – Cathey Anderson, Freedom Climb Founder
Continue to pray for the health of the climbers.
Pray that the hike tomorrow would go well.
