This article is waiting to be translated, in a few weeks.

We want to return in the valleys of Solu Khumbu (first passage in 2002) by trying to cross three passes: Kongma, Cho, Renjo La, and to go to four base camps Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Everest and Cho Oyu. We should find ourselves in isolated passages while returning on the very busy paths leading to Gokyo and Gorakshep.
21 days of trek from Lukla with 5 to 7 days of autonomy under tent with  possibilities of intermediate provisioning. A lot of time above 5000m with the risk of snowbound passes, the risk also to find no plane from Kathmandu also because of the weather…

End of August, 2014: on-line purchases of KTM-Lukla Return tickets 330USD (very expensively but it is for a noble cause 😉 via the site Tara Air was made during the day and with the kindness of the Yeti Air staff. Having said that, impossible to buy directly on a secure site: it is necessary to transmit the copies of passport and bank card (2 sides) by email… And Paypal did not reach to Nepal yet apparently.

It will be necessary to choose among three options during the journey, according to our shape, to the climate, and to the poeple on the road: ascent of Pokalde from Kongma la (hillsides seem strong and maybe unbridgeable without special material), ascent of Chukhung tse from Chukhung, or go to the base camp of the Everest by climbing on Kala patar (option depending on the crowd met between Lukla and Pangboche). This last option is chosen for the description of the current project.
All our thanks to those of you who would set of their time to criticize this preparation!
