We are excited to be back in Kathmandu making our last preparations before heading into the mountains and Khumbu valley to begin our trek to Basecamp. Yesterday we completed a gear check, orientation and received the climbing permit for Mt Everest. Today we will do any last minute shopping, get our last arriving climber up to speed with gear and orientation and enjoy the higher speed internet before flying to Lukla tomorrow morning if the weather is good.
After a tough year in the World we are incredibly excited to be starting up our international trips in a safe manner, and I think fitting in starting with the highest mountain in the World. It has been great to catch up with friends in Kathmandu and fellow guides from around the World albeit at a distance and with masks on of course.
Our team has all received a negative Covid test after arriving to Kathmandu most of our Sherpa have been at Basecamp making our camp and quarantining.
I’ll be posting here daily and look forward in having you along for the journey!
Thanks for following along,
