Everest Base Camp Trek: Dharmavariants Arrive in Lukla

Friends, family & loved ones,

This morning, we packed up our bags, headed down Namche Hill and crossed the double-decker suspension bridge en route to Lukla. We re-traced our steps of almost two weeks ago but with fresh eyes and a whole new perspective.

We walked at a reasonable pace, but made it here in record time and we had most of the afternoon free to relax and shop. And shop some more.

This evening, we will bid farewell to some of our incredible Sherpa staff, who will return to their homes up valley tomorrow morning. We could not have done this trek without their help.

We’re all hoping for good weather for our flight to Kathmandu tomorrow.

Thanks for following!

Carole & Vern Tejas
