Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
The Team had a “Tejas Rest Day” today — we were busy almost all day. This morning, under clear blue skies, we hiked up to the top of the moraine overlooking Sabai Tsho — the glacial lake that was the source of the 1998 flood we’ve been talking about. It was a great hike hopping over some rocks and climbing some scree to get to our vantage point at about 14,400 feet.
On the way back down to town, we got a stunning view of the West face of Mera Peak. You can see the North summit in the photo below.
After lunch, we walked down valley to a small Buddhist Monastery built into a cave. Very old, but rebuilt fairly recently. We lit a butter lamp and burned some juniper and spent some time soaking in the ambience of the monastery.
We’re all feeling good and are looking forward to moving up to Khare tomorrow.Carole & Vern Tejas
