Hello Everyone,

Today we hiked from Namche to Deboche in great weather! After our first 15 minutes on the trail today we got our first views of Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam! It’s always incredible to see these spectacular mountains. We had a photo shoot today with pictures below on the way to Deboche. We had a big hill to climb up to Tengboche today, where we stopped at the famous monastery and watched a Buddhist ceremony before heading down to our lodge for the night. We are at about 12,300ft tonight. Tomorrow we continue further up the valley towards EBC! Thanks for following along!
