Our Teams are enjoying great weather in the Khumbu Valley! Our Private EBC Trek with Gokyo Loop Team made it to Everest Base Camp. IMG Guide Harry Hamlin sent back a couple great photos of the team. They are now back at Gorakshep and will wake up early to climb Kala Pattar.
The 3X2 Team with Lobuche Peak Team enjoyed a perfect High Altitude Trekking day, crossing Khongma La. This is a major test for any trekker. Leaving Chukkung the team gradually heads uphill, crossing the pass and gaining stunning views. This team made great time and are feeling good at Lobuche Village.
At Ama Dablam Base Camp, the team spent their rest day familiarizing themselves with their climbing duffels and getting organized in their tents. IMG Guide Nathan Berry arrived after his 2 day trek from Lukla. It is safe to say that Nathan is well acclimatized after a summit of Island Peak, crossing Amphu Lapsta and 2 summits of Mera Peak. Phunuru and Sherpa Fura trekked up to Camp 1 to evaluate the route and look for camp sites. Tomorrow the team will rig harnesses and do some training.
All is well in the Khumbu Valley!
