Everest Base Camp Achieved!

Namaste friends, family & loved ones,

Team Namaste High moved well over the glacial moraine on our way to Gorak Shep, the highest habitation in Nepal. Clouds ran up the valley so we decided to go to base camp rather than climb.

An hour into our trek we were excited to see Everest again, only now it was much closer.

We descended to the Khumbu glacier and celebrated our arrival at base camp!

The team is feeling the altitude yet performing great on the trail. Our goal for tomorrow is to climb Kalapatar and trek down to a lower elevation. You are in our thoughts.

All our best,
Carole & Vern Tejas
