Welcome to Kathmandu! The Madison Mountaineering Everest 2019 team has nearly all arrived in Kathmandu to kick off the Everest expedition and base camp trek. Expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provided this update:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in on April 2, 2019 for the Mount Everest expedition. Today most of our members are arriving Kathmandu, Nepal. Later, we are going to do our equipment check and then have a team dinner. Tomorrow we are going on a city tour. After the city tour, we are going to prepare for our departure to Lukla.
Great weather here in Kathmandu at the minute. Everyone is doing fine. There was a big rain storm in southern Nepal recently which didn’t affect us here. We didn’t even notice it. Everyone is doing well so far and we look forward to a few more of our members arriving Kathmandu today and getting started! Thanks for checking in!
