Welcome to the expedition dispatches for the 2012 Mountain Trip Everest and Lhotse Expedition!

We are excited to be making the last preparations for our team to meet in Kathmandu, Nepal and begin our journey to the highest point on earth!

Our team is heading towards Nepal in the next few days, and the guides, Scott Woolums and Jacob Schmitz, are in Kathmandu making final preparations right now!    We have another strong team heading over to the Himalaya this spring and each of our climbers has  joined Mountain Trip for at least one, if not multiple, prior expeditions.  We are privileged and excited to have them join us again for what will prove to be an amazing adventure.
