Everest – Day 25: Acclimatization

April 23 (Tuesday)

Today Lakpa made me go on an acclimatization hike almost to Pumori base camp (around 17,000ft?).  Pumori is a 23,494ft mountain overlooking Everest base camp.  It doesn’t have an Icefall so it’s really a lot safer to acclimatize on. At first I didn’t really feel like going (being a bum and all), but I knew I had to if I were continue the climb.

I gotta say, I felt absolutely great on the hike!!  The two days of rest and being a bum really helped!
