Hi this is Hyker Wilsons’ group on the Everest Basecamp Trek October 1st 2012.
We made it to Everest Basecamp yesterday – all of us yay!

We were exhausted, we fell asleep last night and two of us (Kevin and Amanda) climbed to the top of Kala Patar this morning and saw the sunrise by Everest.

We are now heading back down the mountain so we have done all of the climbing we are going to do and are now heading back down.

We are all doing very well and are in good spirits and are taking a ton of pictures which I’m sure you’ll all see later.

Thanks Bye

Hello I would like to leave a dispatch; this is the Everest Basecamp Trek 2012.

We left Lukla yesterday morning and arrived safely and walked to Phakding and spent the night at the Green Village Guest House and had a nice meal and got some rest and we’ve been watching DVD’s for a while. Today we are heading to Namche which is uphill so we are looking forward to that. This is Hykers’ Wilson group on the basecamp trek 2012. Thank you – bye.
