Freedom Climb 2013 – Back in Lukla

By – Celia Shortt

All of the Freedom Climbers are back in Lukla! The last of the climbers made it there this afternoon. Their trek today had much less snow than the last few days. They are enjoying the clearer weather and being one step closer to home.

Last Trek!

“I did this with my daughter. Twenty-five years ago when I gave birth to her, I never ever imagined that she and I would be trekking through the Himalayas together. And it’s just been such a wonderful experience — spiritually, physically, emotionally. We’ve hit it all.”       – Kristy Allan

Tomorrow, all the climbers head back to Kathmandu. The weather forecast says snow could be coming when they are supposed to fly out. So far, the weather has been clear. Pray that it stays clear, and everyone is able to fly out of Lukla and back to Kathmandu tomorrow (late night here). Check back here, the Freedom Climb Facebook page, and website for more details, pictures, and videos of the climbers.
