April 25 - Our trip begins the fouth week of April where we start our journey to Nepal.  We first fly from the United States to New Delhi, India, where we arrive the next day and will spend the night. 


April 27 - We travel again by plane to Kathmandu, Nepal.  We will spend the rest of the day as well as the next in Kathmandu.  One exciting event that will be taking place during this time is the wedding ceremony of two our travelers - Sabrina Singh and Adam Gilmore!  They will be getting hitched in a Sikh Wedding ceremony in Kathmandu!  We are looking forward to celebrating this great occasion with them. 


April 29 - The real trek then begins where a quick fourty minute flight takes us into Lukla (9,315') followed by a 4-5 hour hike to the picturesque village of Phakding (8600').


April 30 - Our first real ascent will take us to Namche Bazaar (11,305') as we follow the Bhote Koshi River through forest, pasture land, and a valley dotted with small Sherpa settlements.  Upon reaching Namche we will also be able to get one of our first glances of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse.  We will spend an extra day here to adjust to the altitude.


May 2 - Another few thousand feet will bring us to Tengpoche (13,779') on this day.  The path will take us to breathtaking views of Kantega (22,300'), Ama Dablam (22,500'), and Lhotse (27,890'), and Mt. Everest (29,000').  After a rhododendron forest and a descent to the shores of the Dukh Koshi River a steep climb will bring us to Tengpoche and the site of the most important monastery in the Khumbu region.


May 3 - From Tengpoche we cross the Imja Khola and climb to Pangboche.  Here exists another interesting monastery in the midst of the Himalayas.  We will continue to Dingboche (14,245') where we stay for the night as well as the next day for rest.


May 5 - We cross Lobuche (16,082') and go over the terminal moraine of Khumbu Glacier
