Base camp – Acclimatisation
Mike had a comfortable first night in his tent and is extremely happy to be where is is. Today its a quiet day for him as he gets used to the altitude, sorts out is equipment and finds his place in the K2 basecamp.
Fred and Köbi have left the camp today and are walking to a higher altitude where they will leave some equipment that might be needed during the ascent.
Base camp is quiet this year with only two other expedition teams attempting to do the summit. It appears that the recent shooting of alpinists in the Nanga Parbat region put a few teams off the trip and several of them cancelled or turned back.
