Going home

From left, Gil, Roz, Beng Cheong, David and Ting Sern. A bit worn but happy.

Dear Folks,

200 yaks are headed up to ABC yesterday – most of the expeditions are tidying up and wrapping up their businesses and the yaks will be bringing down equipment, rubbish, summit and high camp gear. Over here, packing to go with the impending monsoon, rains, snow and so on. Last night we had a small get together with the RAF Mountain Rescue Team who are also here climbing Everest. The single malt whisky was most welcome 🙂

It’s been a heck of a trip, even if the summit was not on the cards. Our return journey will take us back to Tingri (4,300m), and then Zhangmu (2,200m) where we hope to survive the hot dusty plains after Kodari back to Kathamandu. There’s a 3-day general strike starting today in the capital. We’ll be posting 1 -2 more reports from Kathmandu but until then, it’s been great having all your supportive email, comments and questions.

If you’ve enjoyed the ride so far, do help the Society for the Physically Disabled by going to and registering your support. One of our key supporters, Brands Essence of Chicken will donate $1 for every support registration received. Many thanks!
