Everest Base Camp Trek: Dharmavariants in Lobuche

Friends, family & loved ones,

Another bluebird day! The Team left Thukla this morning at our usual time- 8 am – and hiked up the big hill to a special place, dotted with memorials to fallen climbers. After a break there, we continued to Lobuche, where we arrived in time for lunch.

A number of our Team have reached personal altitude records (- exciting!) and are looking forward to climbing even higher tomorrow.

This afternoon, we plan to continue our acclimatization by drinking tea at our lodge, relaxing and for those who are interested taking a hike up on the ridge overlooking the Khumbu glacier.

A special shout out today to Arjun and Anjali, who both did great on their Science Fair projects!

Tomorrow, depending on the weather, we plan either to visit Everest Basecamp or climb Kala Pattar. Check back with us to see what we did!

Thanks for following,

Carole & Vern Tejas

  • Self Love and Wilderness

    Submission by Avalon Qian. “Tag responsibly, keep the West wild.” I pause mid-mindless-instagram scroll. 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 […]
