After getting our bags packed (and nearly down to correct weight 🤔). We were up at 4am to get a flight to Lukla to begin our first ascent of Everest and flying into Lukla is one of the most awesome sights you can imagine and one of the worlds most dangerous airports.
We then started our first climb of the adventure by climbing approximately 5 hours to acclimatise slowly to get ready for the harder climbs later. After a brief break for lunch we climbed a tough climb to a Buddhist monastery for about 2 hours to get used to going higher and then sleeping low.
All the team coped well with the day. After dinner we set-off to bed as we have an early start up the mountain, so we’ll rested for a tough day tomorrow.
