Dear All, I did write a little account of this trip but can't seem to figure out the Nepalese technology to attach it! So, these are just a few pics in the meantime. For the Medex guys, this is what's been keeping me out of too much trouble for the last week or so...in the Langtang region on an ascent of Yala Peak at 5732m. Brilliant trip, really looking forward to more adventures in the Hidden Valley...Best wishes to you all, Zoe.

Whilst in the field friends and family will be able to send text messages to the expedition free of charge via the Iridium website. To do this visit www.iridium.com then select the link “send a satellite text message” and then type in our number which is 881631669155. You can send upto 160 characters. Please note that messages will be picked up once daily and that the phone will not be switched on all of the time. We will do our best to pass messages onto individuals by VHF if required. I hope this makes sense.

Over a 1,000kg of freight has arrived today in Kathmandu. Our local agent, Tenji Shepra of Sherpa Brothers Treks and Expedtions, is beginning the task of extracting all of this from Nepalese Customs. All will be stored at the Hotel Manasulu where it will be checked by Stephan Sanders, Zoe Smith (already in Nepal), Jamie MacDonald and Sam Oliver.
