Planet GRANTS It! Buying Supplies in Litang
Dave Anderson, Planet GRANTS It! recipient has been blogging about his trip to the Genyen Massif in China. Read his first blog here. Stay tuned – Dave is back and we’ll be hearing how his trip went soon!
Yesterday we met with Rinchen Chuta, who will be joining us to our Genyen base camp, and worked out the logistics for our trip into the mountains. Today we bought groceries at the local market and various other supplies we will need during our climbing expedition. The weather has been mostly rainy with a few breaks of sunshine. Tomorrow we will drive two hours to the end of the road, load our gear on some horses and trek to our base camp in the heart of the Genyen Massif.
