Everest Updates 4/3/2017

Our Nepal season is in full swing, with the Everest Expedition, Island Peak Expedition, and Everest Base Camp Trek groups all underway.

Everest summit climbers landed in Lukla yesterday, and trekked to Phakding. Today they're headed for a two-night stay in Namche. The group is full of anticipation for Everest.

Island Peak climbers and our Everest Base Camp trekkers are traveling together at this point in the journey, having a great time and enjoying mostly good weather. They've reached the upper Khumbu and visited Tengboche monastery, following two nights in Namche Bazaar. They will arrive at Everest Base Camp on April 7th.  Stay tuned for regular updates on these adventures!
