Hyatt in Kathmandu” It’s official! Alpenglow Expedition’s 2016 Ama Dablam program is now under way. My jetlag is slowly subsiding and all team members including our Everest Base Camp Trekkers have safely arrived in Kathmandu. Today I finalized our last trip logistics by online chatting with our Sirdir Dorji who is currently in his home village of Phortse (gotta love technology right?!). We talked weather, conditions and confirmed that the proper gear and teammates are in position for a smooth transition for our arrival into Lukla and Ama base camp. Monkey in Kathmandu

Personally, I’m super stoked to get back into the beautiful Khumbu and once again climb with Alpenglow’s amazing and talented Sherpa staff on one of the world’s most iconic peaks. Tomorrow our team will tour Kathmandu visiting several famous holy sites all the while dodging crazy drivers and wild monkeys! Stay tuned for more! Loving this place! ”
