Everest Base Camp

15th April , 2012 - Rest Day

Here at basecamp whenever we say that we are part of the Indian expedition, the next question is “Is it Army expedition?” and why not so, Indian Army has been organizing Everest expeditions consistently for past so many years. And this year is also not an exception. There is lady officer’s expedition from Indian army. We visited Army expedition camp site and interact with the leader Col. Ajay Kutiyal as well as all team members. They all were stunned when they heard that many of has left the jobs for last one year for this expedition. For defense people it’s part of their job in fact, they will be getting extra allowances being part of the expedition. The leader also accepted the fact how tough it is for civilians to attempt Everest.
