Border Crossing

We are now in China. Stepping across the Nepal-Tibet border sends you two hours into the future as Tibet follows Beijing time.

We were quite nervous at customs as we had received several warnings to hide all our communications equipment. That's because China is strict in implementing fees for these equipment. But thanks to the arrangements made by our trekking agency, Thamserku, we got through without any problems.

We will now be driving to base camp. Just got word from co-expedition leader that he is now in Lhasa. We will rendezvous in four days then proceed to CBC. Will update when we hear from the team.
