The long trip from base camp to Lhasa

On April 30, all climbers of our group, including Lhakpa and I, left base camp in an overloaded bus. We all knew this would be a long ride and that is why we were not too happy when we saw the small bus arriving in base camp to pick us up (yes, you can reach Everest North Side base camp by car or jeep…). Well, this was the only way to get out of base camp and we were actually in a good situation, since this was one of the first buses that arrived here. According to the information we had, there were about 150 climbers in this camp, and all of them hat to be moved out of the earthquake zone (defined by the Chinese authorities) in the next few days.
