The American Alpine Institute/Adventure Consultants 2014 Everest Expedition is Underway
|The AAI/AC Everest 2014 Team|
Hi everyone, welcome to the AAI/AC 2014 Everest Expedition.
Preparations are now over and the team is ready to fly to Lukla tomorrow morning. At 5am, the team will leave the hotel for a 6.30am flight from Kathmandu to the infamous Lukla airport. After a week here in Kathmandu, I for one am ready to begin our trek up the valley over the next 10 days to Everest Base Camp.
