Finally, I got my act together to write this blog about my epic journey to the Mt. Everest Base Camp during October 2016. The goal of this website is to share my experience hoping it will inspire and assist others in their own journey to this beautiful place in Sherpa Valley. Mount Everest is venerated in local culture and known as Sagarmatha in Nepali language and hence the title “At the Lotus Feet of SagarMatha” for this blog about the Mt. Everest Base Camp expedition.
