It's All Over!

The crowds of Medex folk in the Manang Hotel are now thinning as Kathmandu Pemba races to and from the airport ushering members to their many and various flights. The trip has been 2 or 3 years in gestation and flourished in the field for 5 week but now everyone is either safely back in Kathmandu or already on their way home. 

We are feeling huge relief that everyone is safe but already have some pangs of nostalgia for a great Expedition with some wonderful people and staff to a fantastic destination. 

Already there is talk of "what's next?" but, for the time being at least, we are staying tight lipped. One thing is for sure it will be hard to stay away from this magnificent country, its people and its mountains for too long.

So, for now, this is the last blog. We have had 10,500 page views over the last 2 or 3 months and I hope you have enjoyed following it.



  1. Thank you for all these updates!!! Glad you are all safe from the ascension and from the quake!!!!! SAFE TRAVEL HOME to you all!!

  2. You are so lucky to have left Katmandou the day before the earthquake !
    Thoughts for nepalese people.
    Let us show our solidarity.

  3. Any news of Chris Smith and Neil Onyon (my brother)? They didn't get out before the quake hit. We heard on Sat morning that they were OK but nothing since then.

  4. We've just heard that they are on their way home via Abu Dhabi and should be home tomorrow (Tuesday)
