Snow in Dingboche


Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is the Khumbu Cake Crüe reporting in from beautiful downtown Dingboche. We’ve dropped over 3,000 feet today and people are really feeling the oxygen running through their bodies. Everybody’s appetite has really picked up and we’re feeling great being down here.

It was a nice long hike in some fresh snow conditions and it’s snowing right now as I speak. So we’ve been really lucky with the weather throughout the journey and now that we’re coming down out of the mountains it’s starting to spit snow at us and the timing has been good. Everybody’s doing well and we’re looking forward to heading down to Namche tomorrow.

So stay tuned for the further adventures of the Khumbu Cake Crüe. Ta ta for now!
