News from Mt Everest

There has been an incident in the Khumbu icefall on Mt Everest this morning involving Sherpas from a number of teams, including the Adventure Consultants Climbing Sherpas. All the Adventure Consultants climbers and guides were in Base Camp at the time and were not involved. We are waiting to hear updates regarding our Sherpa staff and we hope to be able to post a further update soon.
