Mk on trek to Everest: Rather than rush off on trek, the group will have a day to relax after
the international flight, and explore the bustling sights of Kathmandu,
including the 'monkey temple’ at Swayanbunath.
60 years ago: The party, along with 350 porters, left Kathmandu on the 10th and 11th March.
