The Mountains are calling & we must go back…

Sons of Everest - Tenzing Norgay (status), Jamling Norgay and me

We, the 10 winners of popular expedition contest were very excited to be part of Everest Base Camp with Jamling Norgay. We started this trek on 20th April. In the first week itself, an earthquake struck Nepal. We were having lunch when we felt tremors, we immediately moved out and as soon as we came out, the shack collapsed. We walked for 8 hours to reach Tyangboche, a safe place to stay and halted there for 2 nights, all beyond that village was collapsed. The next plan was to reach Syangboche, which was the base for military helicopter to airlift us. Adding further to the woes, the military helicopter couldn’t land down for 2 days owing to the low visibility and we were finally airlifted on 30th April. We all bonded like family and discovered an inner strength, we never knew existed within us. We experienced the majestic beauty of the mountains and the Sherpa culture and this compelling passion wants us to go back. Moreover, it taught us to value nature and oxygen more than WIFI and other luxuries. WE ARE WAITING TO FINISH WHAT WE STARTED.

Nothing can stop us

We were just 25 kms away from our target - Everest Base Camp

So near, yet so far
