The weather gods really smiled on us today. At 5am the clouds were right down and not looking promising but by the time we set off in the bus the clouds had burned off and the sun was shining in a clear blue sky. We are heading back over the Dochula Pass were we could hardly see anything 2 days ago and are really hoping for a view of the Eastern Himalayas. We couldn’t have asked for better conditions: the peaks coming into view as we climbed up to the pass (stopping for photos on the way). At the top we are only supposed to have a short break but everyone is just taking more and more photos – it is so inspiring. We can see the world’s highest unclimbed peak Gangkhar Puensum (7,570 m) and a whole lot more that are above 7,000m. They are only visible about 20% of the time so we are extremely fortunate.
