This year’s adventure has brought us to Nepal. We (Pat, my lovely wife and life companion; Sakkar, my courageous sister – whose idea this was; and two friends, Vandana and Carol) are here to trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC). The trek is not very long but requires us to climb from Lukla (elevation ~ 9,500 ft) to EBC (elevation ~ 18,500 ft).
We will begin our trek on September 2, 2017. We will fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and then begin our 11 day trek. We landed in Kathmandu a couple of days ago so we could enjoy beautiful and prestine Nepal.
The last few days we have spent in Chitwan National Forest. We drove down from Kathmandu along the river. The road was very badly damaged due to heavy rains and mountain slides but the views were gorgeous.
