Arrival to Kathmandu!

Everest 2016_Climbing Permit

Receiving the climbing permit from government officials.

Today I received my climbing permit from the Ministry of Tourism in Nepal.  After an official briefing, a few signatures, well wishes and a khata, I was presented with a permit and official permission to climb Mt. Everest.

One (important) step closer!

I plan to leave for Lukla early on Monday morning, April 4th, to begin the trek to Everest Base Camp, weather permitting.

    Big mountains are the definition of a step at a time. Looking good!

      Thanks Alan. We hope to get out for Lukla tomorrow. There are reports of only a flights getting out over the past days due to weather, but we plan to give it a go first thing in the morning. It will be good to get on the trail. Thanks for following along!
