We are now sitting in our tea house at 16,200ft in Lobuche. It was another perfect day for weather here in the Khumbu. We are starting to feel some of the effects of the high altitude with some small headaches, and feeling like it’s tough to get enough oxygen but everyone is doing very well and healthy. We walked mostly on the moraine of the Khumbu glacier today gaining around 2,000ft in elevation. We stopped at the Climber’s and Sherpa’s memorial today on the way to Lobuche for a somber reminder of all the tragedy in these mountains during climbing expeditions.
Tomorrow we will trek to the last village before basecamp, Gorak Shep, at 16,800ft. If everyone is feeling really good we may continue on to basecamp but we will see.
Everyone says hello to everyone following along! Thanks for following. Below is a picture of Lama Geishi that gave us a blessing a few days ago.
