206 Crew On Ridge To Dhampus Pass. Kneeling Gyan Tamang, Pemba Rinji, Jerome Ryan. Standing Nima Dorje,Mingma, Kumar, Tenzin [6 of 7]
A few minutes after reaching the ridge to Hidden Valley at around 4500m, the trail entered snow. We could see more people descending the snow slopes ahead. Hmm, what to do. The trail plodding though the snow would be much slower, so I was worried that we might not reach Hidden Valley by the time the wind explodes. I decided once again to retreat. Just before we turned around and retreated, I took another team photo. Kneeling down are guide Gyan Tamang, cooks helper Pemba Rinji, and Jerome Ryan. Standing are porters Nima Dorje and Mingma, cook Kumar, and cook helper Tenzin.
