Everest Base Camp Trekkers and Island Peak Climbers Part Ways

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

This morning in Dingboche, the trekkers said goodbye to Vern and the Island Peak Climbers.

One last photo of the trekkers and Island Peak climbers before we split up.

The Island Peakers headed up to Chukung and we, the trekkers, headed down (well, we headed up and down – mainly down) to Namche. We went slow and steady, but made it down here in record time despite several yak-jams along the way.

Immediately upon arrival in Namche, the team members enjoyed much-awaited hot showers.

We are clean!

Tired but happy after a long day, we’re looking forward to a leisurely walk down to Phakding tomorrow.

Sincerely, Steve House in Training  Hi Steve House in Training, Thanks for reaching out […]
