Yesterday we walked from Namche to Thame. The walk to Thame is a pleasant walk through some pine forests and beautiful views of some peaks poking out from the clouds above. The air has been slightly cool when cloudy but plenty warm when the sun is out. And excellent for hiking.
Thame is slightly off the main trail to Everest Basecamp and we get a chance to visit some of our friends’ houses while there. In the morning before leaving today we visited Lakpa Rita’s house and Mingma Tserring’s house (Mingma is trekking and climbing with us).
Thame is about 1,000ft higher than Namche at 12,300ft which is great to spend another night at that altitude to help our bodies acclimatize. On that note, everyone is doing great with the altitude and with having fun!
Right now we are finishing up lunch on our way to Khumjung for the night. Khumjung is where the Sir Edmund Hilary school and Hospital are and is just over 12,000ft.
Thanks for following along. I didn’t have service last night so I’ll send a few pictures from the last day or so.
