Here is expedition leader, Garrett Madison, with today’s report on the trekking progress towards Everest Base Camp:

Helllo, this is Garrett calling in for the Mountain Hardwear Mount Everest Expedition.  Today is September 11th we had a great trek today from Namche down the hillside and across the river, up to the Tengboche Monastery, and then down into the rhododendron forest to the village of Deboche.  We are staying in the Rivendale Lodge here in Deboche.

 

We just had a great dinner and folks are heading off to bed.  It’s raining hard outside – it’s feeling like a bit of the monsoon season.  But we are hoping for clear sky tomorrow and a nice view of Mount Everest and Ama Dablam.  All’s well here on the trek to Everest Base Camp.
