It has been a busy few days in Kathmandu and we expect a couple more before we can settle into our routine. Team 1 was up and out the door early this morning to catch helicopter flights to Lukla. As is often the case, the team did a great job getting out the door, checking in and being ready for the flight to Lukla. The weather in Lukla decided to give the team a little more time to think about the flight and what is to come. Fortunately, the skies cleared enough for all heli flights to get in and the team is now in Lukla. With this slightly later arrival time, the team decided to enjoy Lukla for the afternoon and the hospitality of our friends at the Paradis Lodge and will get up early and hit the trail.
Team 2 is arriving to Kathmandu and will confirm they have all their luggage and gear needed for the trip. Team 2 has a great group of climbers and trekkers who have EBC, Lobuche Peak, Island Peak, Gokyo, Everest and Lhotse in their sights. Ang Jangbu and Porter McMichael will knock out gear checks with everyone and get the Team ready to go. Flight arrival times change frequently and our incredible teammate, Mohan has been on top of these changes, waiting at the airport with his big “Welcome to Nepal” smile.
Our Custom Trek is meandering up the Khumbu Valley and is now in Phortse after spending a night in Khunde and the Monj. Also arriving to Nepal is our Manaslu Trek Team who will be obtaining their trekking permits and flying into Jagat on Saturday.
All is well in Nepal!
