Gorakshep
14th April, 2014 - Kongma La pass

Under blue skies we walked with a throng of trekkers, almost in a continuous line, from Lobuche to Gorak Shep (NB: 21 years ago I proposed to my wife Kathy in a yak pasture in Lobuche but that’s another story). In Gorak Shep Ron and Alice, who are fighting respiratory and GI problems, decided to hang. Todd, Ed and I with Nawang and Jiko proceeded to Everest BC. It was a 3 hr walk along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Gl. There are many memorials to fallen climbers along the way. Seeing the tent city of Everest BC brought back lots of great memories of my own time spent there as part of the ’93 Am Everest Exp. We had a great lunch at Peak Promotions BC, which is supporting an Indian Exp. One of their sherpas, Ang Kami, was on our ’93 climb. He looked great. Still expeditioning after 23 years. Wow! We walked back under steady snowfall on slick trail. This evening the snow stopped, the sky cleared and the faces of Pumori and Nuptse were stunning.  Cheers.
