My last post back in April 2015 had us on the North Col of Everest. Since then we suffered one of the worst earthquakes seen in Nepal.
To help raise funds for those Sherpas and Nepalis that we were with, I have published a book “From Dubai to Everest”.
All royalties will go directly to those people.
It tells the story of our expedition and also gives information about the places and people that we encountered.
It was snowing when we woke up. The group set off after breakfast from Tingri in Tibet to hike up to a hill above the town at about 5000m.
The weather was changeable and cloudy all day so Everest has not revealed itself yet.
Tomorrow we will hopefully travel on to Basecamp if our bags and gear manage to get across the border and find us.
Final days of tranquility in Kathmandu before the clients arrive and we head off to Langtang for some acclimatisation trekking
We have been staying in The Eco Resort Hotel in Thamel
It’s quiet gardens are a haven of peace away from the busy streets
Recently I had the opportunity to share my experiences of leading high altitude climbing expeditions around the world with the UAE military
They are planning to climb Cho Oyu in 2015 and then Everest in 2016
