A Historic Season In Nepal

The 2014 Spring trekking season in Nepal came to a close last month. As many know, it was a tragic season on Everest this year, when 16 Nepali Sherpa lost their lives in preparation for the 2014 climbing season. However despite this tragic loss of life, MM trekkers were able to successfully travel to Everest Base Camp and ceremoniously pay their respects. Read about this year's trek in the words of MM Guide Deana Zabaldo and MM client Brian Bogdanovich.
