What Lays Ahead
Tomorrow we depart for Lobuche as our next stop. This will include trekking up the terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and through the sobering memorials of those that have fallen on Mt. Everest. After Lobuche we trek to Gorak Shep. We should arrive there around lunchtime and then climb Kala Pattar (18,400') in the afternoon for our best view of Mt. Everest. After Gorak Shep we depart for the Base Camp of Mt. Everest to meet our friend Scott Parazynski and will participate in several activities there. Everyone is looking forward to it!
