Friends, family and loved ones,
The Variants had our longest trekking day so far today — from Dingboche to Namche. On our descent, we made our way past yak trains en route to Basecamp, trekkers headed uphill and porters carrying huge loads of plywood and other construction materials up to the higher villages.
A definite highlight was the rhododendrons in bloom. Their saturated colors … [Amethyst: contrasted with the dusty trail][David: enlivened the atmosphere][Michael: jumped out from the green juniper forest][Russ: leapt off the mountainside to give us a burst of energy][Lisa: were a sight to behold as we descended down to below treeline]. Beautiful!
After lunch in Phunky Tenga, we climbed back up from the river, took a tea break in Sanasa to admire the fantastic view of Ama Dablam, and cruised into Namche late afternoon.
A couple of photos from our day will be sent separately.
Can’t believe tomorrow is the last day of our trek! Thanks for following!
