Everest Trek: Team “Namaste High” Gets Higher

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

Greetings from above tree line in Pheriche. We are all doing great and had a lot of fun getting here today. First thing this morning we headed back to Tengboche Monastery, where we received a blessing from the Rinpoche (head monk). The sky was totally cloudy when we woke up, but just as we hit the trail the clouds disappeared and we were treated to terrific views.

Trail conditions were good today and we especially enjoyed crossing the river on the newly constructed bridge — saving us a couple hundred feet of elevation gain.

We made short work of the afternoon portion of the hike. The “crux” climb was a piece of cake for us.

We are ensconced for the next two nights at our excellent teahouse in Pheriche. The rooms are carpeted!! The walls have paneling! All is well in our world.

Vern & Carole
