Manaslu 2022 kicks off!

Hello Everyone,

Our Manaslu 2022 expedition is just starting. Both of our climbers have arrived safely with all luggage to Kathmandu. Yesterday we did a gear check, lunch at the famous Fire and Ice restaurant, shopping in Thamel, and finished off the day with a great meal at our favorite restaurant Mezze.

Today we will do a city tour, visiting a few of the World heritage sites in Kathmandu and do any other last minute things we need to do today before flying out to Samagoan tomorrow morning.

Our Sherpa team have already arrived in Basecamp with all of our expedition gear and food. Looking forward to seeing them soon and starting the climb shortly!

Thanks for following along!
