Everest Basecamp Trek 2019 – Team Buff Victoriously enters Namche Bazaar

Namaste friends, family and loved ones

Beautiful lowland views abounded as we trek along the Dhud Kosi river valley.

Passing giant Mani Stones and potatoe farms we slowly gain elevation until we entered the Sagarmatha (Local name for Everest)Park.

Great spirits as we push into the park.

The famous bridge over the Dhud Kosi River.

Katas festoon the approach to Namche Bazaar

Tomorrow we take an acclimatization day and visit the market. Everyone is doing well…

All our best,Carole and Vern Tejas
