The Him C crew is making their way through the mountains, but managed to phone in an update and send along some photos. Their trek looks and sounds STUNNING. They’ve been following a ridge line that has offered some tremendous views of Manaslu and Macchapucchre peaks, among others, and full night skies full of stars. They’ve had a few campfires, and one of the students led a fire ceremony to burn away their fears. They report being a bit cold, and now that they’ve been on the trail for coming on two weeks they’re a bit tired, but all in good spirits otherwise. Tomorrow is a rest day for them, and then they will have another full day of walking downhill before they get back in a bus to return to Kathmandu on October 20th.
