Manaslu Base Camp (4,700m), 8 September 2010 – Tuesday saw another rainy day and most of the Himex members and crew were tucked up in their tents, reading a book, writing their journals or just listening to the pounding of the rain on their tent walls. Even our hardworking Sirdar Phurba Tashi, who always finds things to do, said he was bored as there was nothing anyone could do in the pouring rain.
