Gokyo Trek: Elias and Team Explore Namche

Namaste from Namche,

We enjoyed a day in this neurological center that is Namche, old trading town, when the Sherpa from Tibet came to the southern slop of the Himalaya to commerce their goods.

In order to allow for acclimating, we took a good walk on the main trail of the Everest Base Camp route, to get astonishing views of the range, with Ama Dablam as the most imposing figure. A small museum with some Sherpa artifacts, as well as graphical descriptions of their traditions provided great education about this old mountain culture.

We ventured for lunch away from the tourists, and chose a local “Chia Pasal” where true locals eat their dahl bhat and momos (for a fraction of the price and double the smiles)

The afternoon was spent resting, and simply enjoying being in the heart of the biggest mountain range of the world.

Stay tuned for more.

Gokyo Trek: Elias & Team Arrive in Namche Bazaar

Namaste from Namche Bazaar, a.k.a. “downtown Khumbu”, as the Sherpa say. 

Our second day on the trails delivered the best weather possible, which allowed for the first view of two Himalayan giants, Lhotse and Chomolongma in the distance, but also the towering Tamserku and Kushum Kangkaru, that overlooked our progress like patient sentinels.

Crossing the suspension bridges back and forth over the Dudh Koshi River, while taking turns with the caravans of Dzo Dzos (hybrid between yak and cow) added excitement to the steady elevation gaining of our legs.

Arriving in Namche was a surreal image, as people from all over the world merge here from the different circuits of this region. Our rewarding dinner is bringing us now close to bed, and we look forward to spending a day here tomorrow allowing our bodies to acclimate to the new altitude.

Gokyo Trek: Elias and Team Depart Kathmandu, Fly to Lukla

Tasidelek from Phakding! We flew to the famous Lukla airstrip this morning, and after uniting with our Sherpa guide and our porters, we had a quick breakfast and hit the trails. The majesty of the Himalayas quickly overwhelmed our senses, and despite the fact that low in the valley the crowds are somewhat sizeable before they disperse, we embraced what the cobbled trails started to offer out of the gates.

We’re now about to have dinner and an early bed time to compensate for the early wake up today for the airplane ride. However, the slow pace of life in the Himalaya is setting in, and we love it.

Gokyo Trek: Elias & Team Land in Kathmandu

Namaste from Kathmandu!

Everyone arrived safely and timely to Kathmandu late last night. We had an easy day today just resting after the long hours of international flying, enjoying our welcome meal in the Thamel area, and wandering a bit in the busy streets of that area of town before the jet lag started to set in. We called it a day on the early side to allow the body to start adjusting with ease to the time change and in preparation for a busier day tomorrow. The upcoming day will be a a formal visit of the main historical monuments of Nepal’s capital and packing for our flight into the mountains the following day. Stay tuned for the real start of our Gokyo adventure soon!

Great adventure with both guides.  Both were very professional and focused on everyone’s safety first.  My first climb and would come climb with RMI again in a heart beat.  Steve was our rope team’s guide - very knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions.  Cousin Joe made it to the top with the help of Steve and others.  Thanks again for the memorable adventure!

North Cascades: Elias & Team Summit on Shuksan and Baker!

Great five days in the North Cascades with two studs; Taylor and Jake came from Minnesota ready to tackle two significant objectives. Shuksan and Mt. Baker. Weather cooperated, and we did the first one from Lake Ann to Lake Ann in a stylish way. The next day, hiked out in the morning to find ourselves hiking into Baker that afternoon. Bed right away, and back at it in the early morning. The North Ridge of Baker is in usual late season conditions, and rotten ice plus intricate navigation, demanded focus and perseverance. Accomplished but tired, we hiked out yesterday as the sun still shined over the Cascades.
