Almost the first view of Everest

It was snowing when we woke up. The group set off after breakfast from Tingri in Tibet to hike up to a hill above the town at about 5000m.

The weather was changeable and cloudy all day so Everest has not revealed itself yet.

Tomorrow we will hopefully travel on to Basecamp if our bags and gear manage to get across the border and find us.

The hike up Jebel Hafeet from the Green Mubazzarah is stunning

The desert and rock formations are slowly revealed

The summit is over 1200m and the temperature difference is noticeable
