I’m going to visit Nepal in July. It’s monsoon season. Am I mad even to even fly to Lukla and trek up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar? Is it worth the trip?
I reached Everest Base Camp on March 31,2012. On my way up I met a sherpa, Pemba Nuvu Sherpa from Thame Village. He was part of an expedition group but I’m not sure which one. Could you tell me what group he is with and if they have reached the summit yet?
