Started for a nearby hill – AK Singh and I, by 0730 hrs. Met the Americans at their hotel. They were leaving.

Took a couple of photographs with them and exchanged email IDs. Slow walk. Reached 5600m by 1100hrs. Had lunch enroute. Slight headache. Spoke to LCdr Chopra for Bgan installation CD.

He said courier companies were refusing to take the INMARSAT battery that he was trying to send us.
