We arrived at Kanchenjunga base camp three days ago and yesterday had our team puja ceremony. Early this morning, Expedition Base’s Sherpa team left our base camp to advance the route setting on the mountain.
It is always good to be humbled when climbing big mountains. When we planned this expedition, various discussions with team members had us arrive at a decision to climb the south-west face route, from Kanch’s south base camp.
The ‘Expedition Base’ Kanchenjunga Expedition 2018 is well and truly underway. Lakpa and I met with the Nepal Tourism Board officials over a week ago for our team’s pre-expedition briefing, met our Liaison Officer, and received our climbing permit.
The northern spring climbing season is fast approaching. Another season for climbing Mt Everest will be here before you know it. For many, it will bring to the forefront of their mind their own dreams of climbing Mt Everest.
