Spring 2018 Island Peak – Khumbu Khlimbers In Lukla

Namaste friends, family and loved ones!

Up early and out on the trail in fine weather. We dropped from Namche to the Dhud Kosi river and crossed the famous hanging bridge. The lower we trekked the warmer it became and soon we were in spring, with crops coming up and fruit trees blooming. A long day of hiking left us mightily hungry so dinner was particularly delicious.

The team is well and starting to plan activities for Kathmandu. See you there.

All our best,
Vern Tejas & Khumbu Khlimbers
