IMG Mount Everest Expedition 2003
South Side (Nepal) Dispatch One


Expedition leader Dave Hahn called on the satellite phone from Phakding and said all was going well. Today his team awoke early in the morning in Kathmandu, transferred to the airport, and flew by Twin Otter charter flight to Lukla. Then, they hiked for half a day up to Phakding, the first night's camp. Phakding is a beautiful village down by the river.
After all the headaches and hassles involved in getting an expedition out the door, there is nothing better than a good day of hiking, a good meal, and falling to sleep to the sound of the river! Tomorrow the team will climb up to Namche Bazaar, where they will take an acclimatization day. Eric Simonson
The expedition is organized by Eric Simonson IMG Expeditions
