Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker and Team Set Out From Lukla

Mark Tucker here with the Everest Base Camp Trek team. No, internet access at this point, so I thought I’d check in with the satellite phone. So we’re just outside of the Sagarmatha National Park. We had a great night in Lukla.  We took a little time this morning leaving as we organized the loads with our porters. We are set with all our gear that is needed while we continue our trek to Base Camp.  We’re by the Tenzing Norgay Airstrip, where the STOL-type aircraft, acronym for Short Take Off and Landing type planes. Years ago a famous local Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay, with Sir Edmund Hillary supervising, spent a month revamping and lengthening the airstrip, but it is still quite a ride.

The team had a beautiful hike approaching the Dudh Kosi River. It was fantastic. Good views, perfect weather. We are all looking really fine. The team is all doing very well and couldn’t be happier.
