Hello everyone. We have finally made it back to the land of wifi!

It was a wonderful two days at Base Camp and thoroughly enjoyed by all. We bid farewell to everyone there and headed back down the valley to Pheriche. It was an incredibly busy day on the trail with hundreds of porters and yaks heavily burdened with their loads. The weather was pretty nice most of the way which was a treat after yesterday being so windy. We are relaxing in the dinning room here with dozens of climbers where it’s actually hot because of the stove fueled by nothing more than dried yak dung.

Enjoying the thick warm air!

Hello Matt, This is Jay Shah, Nisha’s uncle from Los Angeles. Being selfish, I envy what You all doing now,going to the base camp. I wish I could have done the same. I have gone to Mt. Kailas in Tibet few years ago, but
Base camp is something I have missed out. The group looks so happy!!!!! Wish You all good luck &  thumb’s up to all.
Hope all of You have a refreshing, happy & purposeful trek
