What more can I say – Cholendra was amazing. Always in great spirits, organized, and never a complaint. Hiked up to Tengbouche (as well as up the side of a mountain there to get above the clouds and get a clear sunrise picture of Everest) and he even went so far as to track down the one gentleman in a nearby village who had the keys to the monastery that contained the ‘Yeti skull’. Can’t wait to return to go far deeper into the mountains…hopefully May 2010. Keep your calendar open CB, I may be in contact soon!
