Hello , How are you and your family and friends? What have you been doing? This is Dan Mazur writing to you from the top of our comfortable and affordable hotel in peaceful, calm, friendly Nepal. This evening we are sitting together with friends in a cozy warm candle lit room above the lovely Kathmandu Valley. We are perched upon Tibetan style carpets, drinking fragrant tea with good-natured, interesting Nepali SummitClimb Sherpas, discussing the day’s events. Through open windows we can hear distant tinkling of bells and prayer chanting at the neighbourhood temple, and the cry of the day’s last papaya sellers roving the side streets hawking their wares from baskets on bicycles. The odour of incense and simmering curry pots spices the air. Looking out the windows, we see above the foothills on the rim of the valley, as the rising moon highlights the distant peaks above town, with a light dusting of crystalline new snow. At this exact moment we make expedition plans for our climbs and treks made up of men and women of all ages and abilities, beginning in just 60 days. Are you coming with us? Please get in touch now. All mountains are open and inexpensive flights are still available. Welcome to our team!!
 
This has been a busy week of meetings in Tibet and Nepal preparing for our 2016 Himalayan expeditions. Yesterday, 4 of us just returned from Tibet, where we met with Tibetan government mountaineering authorities, to plan our April, May, September, and October climbs of Everest, North-Col, Shishapangma, Cho Oyu, and treks. The Tibetans are welcoming us to return with open arms. Today, here in Kathmandu, we had a series of long meetings in Kathmandu with the Nepal government mountaineering office and everything is set for our Everest, Lhotse, Camp 3 Training, Everest Glacier School, Island Peak and treks!
