expedition Nepal, Sagarmata.
15 feb - 15 march 2011.
Nepal is a nice country.
Sagarmata national park is a cool place
(hanging out with: Everest, Lothse, Cho Oyo, Thamserku, Ama

agreeable. We are a group of climbers of
different skill levels that plan to climb here
early 2011. Sharing knowledge, passion, gear
and permits during a month. We plan to do it

In early march finding lodges, a solitaire
meeting with nature and bargains in KTM are
easier. The downside is that it will be
colder (downjacket temperature).
we want to do it as cheap
as possible. We have the local know how-how to do this cheap. Share permits,
porters, gear, camps e t c.
Climbing a mountain by your own strength, finding your own routes, turning back, trying again, setting your own camps, organizing teams - its a challenge that will make you grow.
