Fall 2018 EBC Trek – Cheese Balls eat Cheese Balls in Lukla

Namaste friends, family and loved ones,

Taking off early this morning allowed us to avoid some of the animal traffic on the trail. That said, there were plenty of yak jams, but the amazing scenery made it a delightful trek.

We passed through a sacred area that was full of Mani stones, prayer wheels and Stupas. The team patiently allowed us to photo them once again for the hundredth time. Say Yak Cheese!

Though the trail was all uphill today we flew up it and soon passed under Lukla’s arching gate. To celebrate we had ice cream and cake, oh and of course, some cheese balls.

Tomorrow we fly to Kathmandu!

All our best, Vern Tejas and the Cheese Balls!
