Everest Trek: Team “Namaste High” Explores Namche

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

We had a great day today exploring Namche. This morning we hiked uphill above Namche town to get some acclimatization in and to enjoy the views, such as they were. The mountains were playing hide and seek with the moving clouds, but we did get glimpses of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Thamserku. For those of us looking carefully at the right time, Everest came in and quickly out of view.

We had an enjoyable hike and our team was in fine form.

On the descent back to town, we visited the Namche Gompa and received a blessing from the resident monk. We also took a stroll through the weekly market, where locals from all of the surrounding villages come to restock on basic dry goods, vegetables and meat.

We’ve enjoyed our time in Namche immensely, and are really looking forward to heading to Thame tomorrow.

  • 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 […]
