India expedition post 2: After leaving Gangotri we set out toward Tapovan basecamp at 14,300 ft. We had beautiful weather on the way in. I was amazed watching the Pahadi porters carry up to 75 kilos(triple load). Such strong individuals. We took our time on the way to basecamp getting to know our team where they were from and learning about their families back home. After arriving at basecamp We opted for a rest day and some acclimatization activities.
