As many of you know I returned in the first week of May 2011 from a three week trek to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. South Col Expeditions ran two treks this spring - the Panorama trek to Thyanboche and the Kala Pattar trek. It was my first visit to the Everest region in the spring. While going through my old notes, I found an interesting essay which I had written after returning from Everest in the winter of 2004. As most of you would not have read this, I am posting this on my blog.

South Col Expeditions has tied up with Santaman Tamang of Nepal Trek Guide in Kathmandu to jointly handle treks and photo-expeditions in Nepal. Santaman and his team of dedicated and committed guides provided excellent support to the twenty one member South Col team which trekked to Thyanboche monastery and Kala Pattar recently. Shyam Tamang who accompanied the Kala Pattar trekkers and Shera Lama Tamang who handled the Panorama trek to Thyanboche monastery were both hard working, efficient and offered service with a smile. Santaman who is the leader of the organisation has a wealth of Himalayan experience. South Col will continue to do further treks with Santaman and his team.
