Day 6 – Karanga Valley Camp (Acclimatization Day)
Today was an acclimatization day, and an opportunity to let my feet rest. During the afternoon I hiked up above the camp about 45 minutes, then back, but for the most part this was just a day of relaxation, reading, drinking tea and chatting with team members.
The extra time to acclimatize here was valuable, as some of the team were still suffering from the altitude. I was also glad to let the blisters on my feet subside a bit more.
The summit seemed closer here, and was a little more intimidating than it had been before.
