Namaste friends, family & loved ones,
Team Namaste High ascended 2,300 feet in stellar conditions to arrive in the quaint village of Lobuche. Though it was a tough climb up the infamous Dugla hill, we overcame the challenge with pressure breathing and a calculated pace.
We paused at the place of Chortens, monuments for fallen climbers, to pay our respects. Upon reaching Lobuche we had lunch and then went exploring up the Khumbu moraine. Our effort was well rewarded with a sweeping panorama of Himalayan peaks.
After tea time, clouds rolled up the valley but parted for a bit of alpine glow on Nuptse at sunset.
The team is moving well and adapting to the thin air. We are looking forward to tackling the mountain known as Kalapatar tomorrow.
All our best,
Carole & Vern Tejas
