Everest 2021: Rest day in Dingboche

Hello Everyone,

Today was a rest and acclimatization day here in Dingboche. We did go on a hike though, to further acclimatize and we gained about 1,000ft getting to a new high point on the trip so far at 15,500ft. The team is feeling good and doing very well with the altitude. The last few days were a bit hazy but today we had perfect blue skies in the morning. Tomorrow we will head to our last village before reaching Basecamp. We will stay in Lobuche at 16,200ft for two nights.

Thanks for following along,

Ben Jones
Expedition Leader
