Everest Trek: Team “Namaste High” Ascends to Tengboche

Namaste friends, family & loved ones,

Another blue bird morning for the team as we descended to the Dudh Khosi River. We crossed the river on one of the suspension bridges that we are now accustomed to and steadily climbed the trail on the other side. When we crested the top of the hill at Tengboche, we were treated to a dazzling view of Everest.

After lunch we joined a special Puja ceremony in the famous Tengboche Monastery. The monks performed an intricate ceremony that had us entranced.

The team is doing fine an adapting well. They love the night view.

All our best,
Carole & Vern Tejas

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 […]
