Ang Jangbu Sherpa sent us a team photo of his crew from the courtyard at the Keys Hotel this morning. The Christmas Kilimanjaro team has now arrived and going through final prep/packing in anticipation of heading up the mountain in the morning. Pretty cool way to spend Christmas and New Year’s. The weather doesn’t look half bad, either.
Ang Jangbu Sherpa is the lead IMG guide on this program. For those of you who don’t know, Jangbu is our Nepalese partner for all our Himalayan programs. Check our his bio – http://www.mountainguides.com/guides.shtml. Great climber, great leader and just a great guy with whom to spend a couple of weeks. The team is in for a real treat with Jangbu at the helm. They’ll be joined by a staff of about 40 Chagga guides and porters. It’s always a pleasure to be able to share their mountain with them. We’re continually amazed by their strength, warmth and skills.
