Peaks and Passes Day 11: April 25

Expedition Itinerary Plan for Day 11:

A day for further acclimatization. We follow the ridge above camp to around 5500 metres and return to Khare. Camp.

Fun Fact of the Day


Nepal is home to one of the few places on earth where you can see both the Bengal tiger and the one-horned rhinoceros.

Today’s Activity: Thin Ice

Materials Needed: 9 hula hoops per group.

Using the nine hula hoops the instructor should make a grid which the children must navigate. The ice is only safe on certain hula hoops meaning there is only one correct way to get out of the “ice”.  If a student were to walk on thin ice they would have to go to the exit the way they entered and go to the back of the line. Eventually by trial and error and the students remembering which routes are correct they will be able to exit the ice and finish the game.

Was it important to communicate with your group? Which strategies did you use? What ones worked the best?
