Also going on this trip. Just read Hotel on Top of the World. Made me excited and wary at the same time. Not at all sure about yak butter tea!

If anyone is flying out of Heathrow on the 13th ... I'll be having a coffee before departure ... feel free to join me  :-)

Hi both, we are also looking forward to this trip - hope the borders are open! never mind coffee at Heathrow we'll be having dinner. Unbelievable that we will visit base camp - can't wait.

Is anybody else doing the Chitwan extension?  Kay and Chris

I have been told that at the moment we will not be able to visit base camp. The aurorities have changed the visa requirements to limit the number of people visiting. We would need a need a trekking visa. Exodus are hoping this will change.

Yes we still get to Rongbuk just not that last bit to actual basecamp.

Looks like a little toddle at 5,000 meters to get a bit closer? A walk in the park me thinks if we can get away with it looks like we need to take some hiking boots.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Heathrow. I think yak butter tea should be tried if only to say yes I have done that.

Keshar good afternoon. I am really looking forward to this trip. I thought if we take out the picture of the Dalai Lama we could take guide books. Is that not so anymore?

I will also be wearing a red jacket! Hoping the wetness goes April is suppose to be a dry month there. Although flying across the himalayas in a small chinese plane during a thunder storm would be interesting.
