Everest Basecamp Trek 2019 – Yetis explore Everest Base Camp!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones!

Another fantastic sunny day in the Khumbu so it was perfect timing to visit Base Camp. We tekked along the lateral moraine for a couple hours until we had to actually drop down onto the Khumbu glacier. Taking lots of photos we relished our accomplishment!

Team members are feeling the altitude but doing just fine, especially now that we are heading back down to where the air is thicker. Tomorrow the trekkers go to Dingboche with guide Carole Tejas while the climbers go with Vern Tejas to East Lobuche Peak base camp to prepare to climb it.

All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
