This is the official blog site for the Medex Manaslu 2015 Expedition. We seek to visit a remote part of Nepal north of Manaslu and establish a Base Camp at 5,300m where we will both conduct research into altitude illness and climb Larkya Peak, 6,200m. We will be in the field from 23rd March until 24th April 2015 and will post regular reports to this site during this period.
Further details can be found on www.medex.org.uk .
Reports will also be posted to the Medex Facebook page.
Despite the hardship of living at a snowy camp at over 5,000m it was sad to pack it up today on a sparkling morning. The picture shows our entire team and staff and members posing below Larkya Peak before we began packing. All research now complete our kitchen staff carried the research gear down today and we follow tomorrow morning. Farewell to Base Camp. Ahead lies the promised land. Simon
