We had a great message from IMG Senior Guide Phunuru Sherpa, who is up in Phortse, the village in the Khumbu where many of our IMG team live. Phunuru and the Khumbu Climbing Center instructors are making quality time out of the current Nepal Government shutdown due to the Virus situation.
Phunuru reports that his team have developed a Summer Camp curriculum for young people and have had a whopping turnout of 45 girls and boys who want to learn about climbing, camping, the environment and outdoor living skills needed for mountaineering.
This is a fun curriculum that will bring the future climbers from the Khumbu Valley together at the new KCC building in Phortse.
For the first few days they will train at KCC, before they head out to the country side for more hands on education and an opportunity to learn how to camp!
I will share photos as they come in. We hope you enjoy these photos, they sure put a smile on our faces!
