Kauma, 11.350 ft. (Steffen Walton).

Tuesday evening we pitched camp in Kauma (11.350 ft.) after a hard trekking day. Kauma is the last campsite with water before the three passes guarding the entrance to Makalu. The trekking days begin with coffee served in the tents at 5:30 a.m., followed by breakfast before setting out at 7 a.m. For the time being we are one day behind schedule, but we plan to catch up within the next few days. Come to Nepal, my son, it's great! In a few days we will be entering the polar region. It's hard to believe when we between the showers are trekking, just wearing shorts.
