3-Day Road Trip across the Tibetan Plateau to Everest Base Camp
When @coryrichards in on your team, you can count on seeing some gorgeous photos and videos of the expedition!
On Saturday, the Alpenglow #Everest2019 team loaded thousands of pounds of gear in trucks and began a 300+ mile procession across the Tibetan Plateau towards Everest Base Camp. Over the course of 3 days, they are traveling from Lhasa to Tingri, the last stop before base camp.
On this long leg of the journey, the team stopped in Shigatse for a tour of the Tashi Lumpo monastery, a stunning structure perched on a hill in the center of the city. The full name in Tibetan of the monastery means “all fortune and happiness gathered here,” which seems like a good place to visit before attempting to summit Everest!
Teams are back on the road and on track to arrive in Base Camp tomorrow.
