Everest Trek: Team “Namaste High” Treks to Kumjung

Namaste friends, family & loved ones,

What a day! The monsoon is finally over and the sun shone brightly all day long. This made for some fine mountain photography.

We visited a traditional Sherpa home for tea and conversation.

We stopped in to see the Kari Gondon Monastery, which is home to 60 Tibetan Nuns. The new building is coming along beautifully. Then we trekked to Kumjung and toured the Hillary school. Team spirits are high and we are acclimatizing well. See you tomorrow!

All our best,
Carole and Vern Tejas
