Everest Base Camp Trek: Dharmavariants Celebrate Nepali New Year in Kathmandu

Friends, family & loved ones,

The whole team returned back to sweltering Kathmandu just in time for the Nepali New Year. Tonight is New Years Eve in Nepal (tomorrow will begin the Nepali year 2079) and we’ve decided to celebrate with a pizza party in the garden. Just the thing we are craving after a couple of weeks of momos and dal bhat.

Tomorrow night and the next day, most of the team will begin to fly back home to you. We have one more day here to explore the city and give ourselves a well-earned rest after the trek.

This will be our final Cybercast for the Spring 2022 Everest Basecamp Trek. Thanks for following along with us!
