New Summit Push on Annapurna

Like Kangchenjunga, Annapurna is in the midst of a summit push. The Sherpa rope fixers are currently in Camp 3 and will prep the route to Camp 4 on Tuesday morning, Nepal time.

“All members are in higher camps, aiming for the summit on April 27-28,” Chhang Dawa of Seven Summit Treks wrote today.

Lakpa Sherpa of 8K Expeditions confirmed that the team’s six clients and eight climbing guides will make their final summit bid on one of those two days.

Angela,,,I remember when base camp were a much colder place,,,there were no spots void of snow,,,as treks were really that,,,sadly turning into amusement as social media has turned it into a bucket list without the adventure it once was

There is no philosophy behind most expeditions these days.
