  Nepal Team Explores Base Camp

21 April 2014 -

Today many of our members again rested in Everest basecamp. We said goodbye to our excellent Canadian trekking team of Derek, Scott, Liam, Mike, Shamus and Ian. We are really going to miss you guys, and believe you to be in good hands with your guide Tenji Sherpa, a real gentleman, a trekking expert, and 14 time Everest Summiter. Howie was not feeling well and decided to return to Kathmandu. We miss you Howie and wish you very good health. Sophie and Will are trekking back to Kathmandu with GyelChiri Sherpa and Mik Raj Basnat. Have a great trek and we wish you and your families all of the best of luck.

Some of our members trekked around local basecamp hills. A few are resting in Gorak Shep.

Dan did some research around Gorak Shep and basecamp to try and learn what happened in the recent horrible tragedy in which it is reported that 13 Sherpas from 5 teams were taken from their families. It seems there may have been a roadblock on the climbing route in the icefall and a large group of Sherpas may have rested at that place together, rucksacks removed, when the avalanche and/or serac collapse struck. As we learn more we cannot but help feel sorrow and guilt that our team has survived while they have passed. May they rest in peace.
