Everest Base Camp Trek: Dharmavariants Descend to Dingboche

Friends, family & loved ones,

The Team left Lobuche this morning in the clouds with a thin layer of last night’s snow remaining on the ground. We moved well down the trail through Thukla and as we crossed the low alpine “bench” above Pheriche, the clouds began to lift. A mere 3 hours after we started, we were at the top of the trail leading down to Dingboche.

This afternoon, we are going to rest, relax and enjoy the amenities in town— bakeries, shops, lots of yak traffic— before descending to Namche tomorrow.

Thanks for following!

This is not the first time I have seen this sentiment in an instagram post or an article about leaving no trace: “Tag responsibly.” “Keep the West wild.” What does this tag mean? I understand the fear that wild places may […]
