Arrived at Mt Everest North Base Camp

Edita sent a few text messages this morning from her roaming swiss mobile phone. They arrived at the base camp after a very bumpy ride. They are spending the day setting up camp and the telecommunications systems. There is no 3G on the north side of Everest and she is trying to get a “China Mobile” sim card because it seems that is the only provider of cell phone service and even that will only work a few hours every day.

They will need to acclimatize for a fews days at the base camp before starting to go any higher. See Edit’a exact location here  http://fms.ws/BiHfW/28.13676N/86.85437E and check out the interactive map (in the column to the right) and you will get a sense of what lies ahead.  We will keep you updated as more news comes in.
