Journeys Marketing Associate Katina Nichols offers wisdom she gleaned on the 35th Everest Anniversary Trek. This was a reprisal of the company's very first trek in 1978. The group would start out in Lukla and aim for either Kala Patar or Everest Base Camp.
We went to Dhulikhel and visited B.P. Shresta's hospital. He's doing a really cool thing there. The have lots of modern equipment including a MRI & CT machines. Also in Dhulikhel, I climbed the 1000 step Buddha. Yep, it was a thousand steps. My legs hurt today but it was absolutely worth it. We went back to Kathmandu yesterday via Baktapur. What a cool town. I have taken so many pictures that my camera batteries have died right there but luckily one of the other travelers is going to share.
