Everest Expedition: Namche to Deboche

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday we had a great rest day in Namche. We went on a hike to acclimatize and then after lunch we had a nice Puja ceremony at the Namche Gompa. Today we said goodbye to our friends at the Panorama lodge and hiked to Deboche. We are now at 12,500ft and everyone is feeling good!

Tomorrow we will hike to Dingboche and be at a new high elevation of 14,500ft for 2 days.

I will update again tomorrow, thanks for following along!
