Hi, this is Garrett Madison calling in for Madison Mountaineering Makalu expedition. Today is Tuesday, September 23rd and we are currently in the village of Tashigaon and trekking up toward Khongma today. We’ve been trekking for two days now, this is our third day. We’ve gone through the jungle, along the river valley and looking forward to getting up on the ridge soon where we can have a view of Makalu. It’s been a very exciting trek being the only foreigners here at this time in the valley, but we’ve had wonderful company from the locals, enjoyed the tea house experience, great food along the way and just enjoying a peaceful serenity here of the Fall. All is well and we’ll check in again soon.
