Everest 2019 Underway
Packed and off to Lukla, let the adventure begin!
As always we’ve had a very busy time in Kathmandu, and are absolutely thrilled therefore to have had our last team members arrive in KTM yesterday! Today our dream team of Damain and Kike, Rowena, Tom, George, Santi and Jorge departed at crack of dawn to fly to Lukla: gateway to the mighty Khumbu region which is the home of a number of the world’s highest peaks including Mounts Everest, Lhotse, Makalu.
Nine days of trekking are coming up, carefully taking the time to allow our team’s bodies to adjust to the affects of higher and higher altitude every day. We’ll be awaiting news from the team but they should arrive at Everest Base Camp on April 17th. With every twist of the trail the team will be encountering new and incredible valleys, faces, smells, foods and feelings. It’s certainly an awe-inspiring place to be and with plenty of intimidating vistas of the teams soaring objective!
Namaste from Nepal!
