hot and sweaty in Arughat

We camped tonight in the yard of the Hotel Manaslu at Arughat about 30m above the West Bank of the river.

The evening was hot and sweaty with spots of rain and the odd mosquito. Our Sherpa and porter crews were introduced to everyone after dinner. We leave at 8 in the morning with our 11 strong sherpa team and about 20 porters. Tomorrow will be a short day but very hot.

Two groups are ahead of us and there will be two more behind us. Quite an army moving up the valley!

Estimated manpower for this part of the trip:
50 members
45 Sherpa staff
100 porters
In addition research loads and re-supply to Base camp clockwise via Bimtang.
