So tomorrow at 6 am we leave for the airport to fly by helicopter (5 flights) to Lukla which is about 10,000 ft. From here we begin the trek into Everest Base Camp and will spend the first night in Monjo at a tea house. It’s a pleasant hike along the river and along the high river banks. Probably be in shorts with a small pack with some warmer weather clothes for when the sun sets. It’s time to leave Katmandu and the great food and other creature comforts like a soft bed and hot shower. It’s expedition time. The mountains are calling, wanting to share their stories. But will they be sharing stories of clear skies and gentle weather? Time to go and see.
