Breaking out of NZ

Everest Base camp trek

NEPAL | Saturday, 1 December 2007 | Views [738] | Comments [2]

Just got back into Kathmandu this morning, meet up with a couple of poms and did most of the trekking with them went to everest base camp 5300m and Kala Pathar which overlooks everest climbing route and base camp at 5600m which was a hard climb. scenery was amazing and the whole area was really nice they like NZ's because of the work sir eds done.
I went well at altitude and carried all my own gear (most people hired porters)
May do some rafting so will probably be in Kathmandu for another 5 days or so and then back to Bangkok.
Ill try and post some pics but the internet speed here is slow but at only 40 rupees per hour cant complain.

Go for broke on the rafting mate. Not much better in the world than the Trisuli or the Sun Kosi if you are after a longer trip. Takes me back to '86 .....
Good to hear things are going well.
Stay healthy.
