Expedition schedule

Lots of pals asking about our schedule when on the mountain – how long does it take to get here or there? How much time spent acclimating? How long for the actual final climb? See below for our planned itinerary… I am reminded of the saying “men plan, god laughs”… well, we’ll still plan – and can only hope Chomolungma (local name for Everest, meaning “goddess mother of the world”) doesn’t laugh too hard.
