EBC Trek 2019 – Khumbu Trekkers to Namche Bazaar

Namaste Everyone,

We awoke in Dingboche to clear blue skies and amazing views all around— what a relief after yesterday’s storm. (Photo 1 – yesterday. Photo 2 – today)

Pumped up by the great weather, the team really enjoyed the walk back to Namche. We stopped for lunch in Tengboche (great mushroom pizza) and then again for afternoon refreshments with a view. Just as we were entering Namche, we saw a group of Danphes, Nepal’s national bird. We were really lucky to get an up close view of this colorful male!

Looking forward to a relaxing morning here tomorrow before we head down to Phakding. Thanks for following us!

    By Val Peckarsky Regardless of past matrimonial experiences, we have all experienced cold feet at one point or another. As mountaineers, with our penchant for traveling willingly into extreme conditions at high altitudes, we frequently find ourselves on the frontlines of the battle against allowing our extremities to become too cold. Cold-related injuries vary greatly […]
