Day 4 - Base camp - Mon 10th

Another magic day weatherwise. Took another trek (3 hours) with pack Eastwards of BC this morning. Lucky to see 3 antelope on the plains, but they were very skittish so could not get a photo. About 6km round trip. Met up with a friendly Yak herder, who must have had about 70 yaks. Spent about an hour lazing on the ridge with the most spectacular views. This is one of the reasons why I do these trips - recharge the batteries. Google Earth point - N28 38 46.2 E 85 46 49.2 Planning a longer, higher,lighter trek with Clive (was also here last year but turned around after camp 3 due to poor slope conditions) and Francis for tomorrow. Possible that yaks for first load will arrive tommorow night, so ABC is not far away. Have been having some early chats with the Sherpas about getting some assistance (from yak, horse, Tibetan or our cook staff) for getting my gear to Depot camp (From ABC).

My "Camp", not a bad view!
