Buying final medical supplies and arriving in Kathmandu

ritikay Buying final medical supplies and arriving in Kathmandu

Today most people arrived safely and despite all the traffic being halted again so that the president of Bangladesh could leave his meeting without delay, the large group mainly arrived relaxed and in good time for kit allocation, group meetings and a most welcome and excellent dinner.


The day allowed for final stocking up on medical supplies where Dr Milligan was able to find a reliable Nepali stockist of the last minute drugs such as Acetazolamide (Diamox).  The whole trek and marathon are supported by 4 doctors, 2 in each team as well as 2 team leaders, Bhai's excellent Nepali guide team, sirdars, cooks and porters.


The hotel Shanker have provided outstanding accommodation and support and we are proud to continue our association with them.
