Day 6 - April 17

The Spot only managed to get two track points out on the most recent march, but then they are following along the bottom of a deep valley, so that is not surprising. The track does show they are getting closer and progressing nicely. My guess is that they continued beyond the last track point to a villiage called Namrung, at about 2400m. They are getting up there now, and Manaslu itself must be in their sights.

This view comes from Google Earth. You can see how close they are getting, but they still need to gain some elevation before they are at base camp at 4800m. There may be a rest day before then. Stay tuned.
