Day hike to Gong Go (4150m) 1PM

This morning we had a beautiful walk up to Khunda village and ridge Gong Go (4150m), a 700m climb in 2.5 hr above Namche. The views were brilliant, Ama Dablam, Everest and Lhotse, amongst other Himalayan giants.

Fish and chips at 3440m

We had a good walk this morning. We reached Namche in 3 hours and headed straight to the comforts of Cafe 8848 for lunch, expresso coffee and beer battered fish and chips! Quite a change from the diet of Hillary on his successful Everest expedition.

Everest and Lhotse spring 8AM

The excitement is building. Pack bags and drums (tick), last minute errands (tick), fuel up on protein and desserts (tick tick), fly out to Lukla without hiccups (tick tick tick !!). And they are off. The team is a few days behind the Canadian Lhotse team who are already in Namche.

Happy to be in Lukla 6PM

Nice and cold in Lukla…down jackets already at 2800m.

We're on the eve of kicking off our Everest and Lhotse spring 2013 season! We're super excited this year to be leading an expedition on Lhotse alongside our annual Everest trip.
