And the courageous journey, the promise and the dream begins!

And the courageous journey, the promise and the dream begins!

And we have officially kicked off our healing journey into the heart of the Himalayas. First and foremost lots of gratefulness for the donations from our supporters on the Indiegogo campaign as well as the private donations and contributions we received. So incredibly thankful for your generous support.

As we departed from San Francisco on April 1st, we had a small stopover in Hong Kong and the opportunity of going to a very special Monastery, the Po Lin monastery in Lantau island (close to the airport) and receive a blessing from their temple. I first visited the Monastery in October of 2005 after my return from Base Camp Everest and it has become a very personal pilgrimage whenever I transit in Hong Kong.

After our visit and transit back to the airport we had a long wait for our connection to Kathmandu and on that last leg of the flight the tiredness of the journey was pretty obvious.

As we landed in Kathmandu, a very sweet welcoming by Shailee, Maya and Asha from the Everest Women Treks and shortly after to the very welcoming Annapurna hotel to rest.

As the girls got to their rooms, I still had a lof work left, getting all my Everest Climb gear ready as one of my lead guides on my Everest expedition, Ang Dorje, would be stopping by 9am to collect all the gear which would depart directly to the mountain.

As I thoroughly started going through my final check list, and as part of my now very traditional custom of forgetting a KEY item on every mountain, this journey would be no exception and taa taa – KEY ITEM forgotten – 8,000 meters pants (special pants used for altitude higher than 26,000ft) which were patiently awaiting on my shopping cart at Backcountry. Oh well, a little shopping experience in Thamel would be now part of my agenda tomorrow.

Our plans for tomorrow would be for our American and Nepali girls to meet and then pay a visit to the Shakti shelter and reconnect with the girls.

Treat of the night: A safe arrival in Kathmandu and all the gear (except for my 8,000mts pants) to be with us.
