Dinner at Base Camp
Left BC at 0730 hrs. Walked up slowly, reached IC by 1315 hrs. Did a bit of recce and decided to put up in the Korean’s tent.

Found they even ran a restaurant ! Got our water bottles filled. No headache. Very spacious and ergonomic tent. The Italian cyclists reached by afternoon. Rested till evening. Saw the two Japanese ladies – 8 Sherpa team arriving and set up tent.

Approached them to make our soup and Maggie noodles for which they happily agreed. Gave us hot water too. Went to the Italians’ tent. They were having smoked pork and cheese for dinner. A spacious tent too.
