There is a lot happening in Nepal now, as we prepare for our 2021 IMG Everest and Lhotse expeditions. Up in the Khumbu, the Advanced Team led by Senior Guide Karma Rita Sherpa arrived to Everest Base Camp a couple of days ago and have started building the camp. Their first job will be constructing large tent platforms for the kitchen and dining tents, which requires moving a lot of rocks and chopping a lot of ice! Accompanying the Team to EBC was IMG stalwart Ang Pasang and his parade of yaks, carrying food, fuel, oxygen and equipment. In the coming days Ang Pasang and his yaks will make several more round trips between Syangboche and EBC with additional supplies.
IMG guides Jonathan Schrock and Ang Dorjee Sherpa departed the USA yesterday and have just landed in KTM with all of their gear. They will be working with Ang Jangbu, Pasang and Mohan to prepare for the arrival of our climbers and trekkers over the next few days.
We are excited to have our team together in Kathmandu soon!
