Everest Base Camp
An Imja Tse (Island Peak 6,189m ) is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal. with a bit of rope work skill ,Hiking stamina and altitude percieverence would work to summit the top all years since it has been climbed . And It is nice spot to learn all climbing strategies on ‘ do it right ‘ principle for beginners alike. But now the people have been using the ladders to cross the crevasses and some people have published the pictures way back .If it is true , the peak is becoming technical climb.
However , we are waiting to hear the maximum information and story of friends /climbers Chongba Sherpa , Deni Sherpa , BRIA AND SETH QUEGG(NOLS instructors)as they are heading toward the peaks including Lobuche today .
As the climbing travllers and expert Eversest Pasang said in the words of Rebecca Croizer (UK ,Founder Member of Alternative Nepal ) “from Dingboche the mountain is seen as an island in a sea of ice, the summit is interesting and attractive with a highly glaciated west face rising from the Lhotse Glacier “. It is just like a fairy tale to me though unless I take off from sitting in the office or only riding the bike or paddling on the water .
The month of March used to be fit and fine to climb for long time in previous years , but this year gave to all climbers surprise , bunch of people , not less than ten diffrent groups of entire compnanies returned without summiting, no matter any of the best skilled climbers .” Heavy snowing envaloped the trail and trail making orgnaization did no work ” a travller said. Now they cleared it and ladders has been set up and going on the easy access .It is true, not only the rapid get changed by monssoon on the river , the things are changeable all the time in moutain too ,as an Imja-Tse approved .
Pasang addressed ,Larani and Spensor climbed way higher than any other team . However , They had to accept the situation and agreed to return down . “still was not less enjoyable to be on mountain, we are already walking up on the mountain ,we will come back again , mountain is always there ” spensor & Larani ,they both added. It was good to share the experiences back in kathamandu well and healthy , just a day earlier than estimated schedule. we had good bye dinner together in magnificient Brian’s Grill house American Restaurant in Dillibazzar.
Remaining the summit due for next time , Larani and Spensor flew to Mumbai and Pasang flew to Tumlingtar with two Austrians gentlemen friends of Alternative Nepal REINHOLD TABOJER and CHARLEY /KARL POOR for Charity in the village of Sonkhuwasabha where they donated computers , study materials for childrens,cash to purchages the neccessary things for Sarada secondary school in Pokhari.
