Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
What a day! We woke up early in Gorak Shep and headed up, up, up the steep trail of Kalapatar. No wind, blue skies, and warm enough to enjoy the spectacular views.
Team on the way up before the sun hit. Everest in back.
Us on the summit of Kala patar.
We returned to Gorak Shep for an early lunch and then headed back down to Dugla for the night. It was a long day of activity, but it sure feels good to breathe the thicker air here at under 15,000 feet! On the way down here, the clouds rolled in but left this window in front of Ama Dablam. Cool.
We’re now gathered around the stove in the teahouse dining room. Everyone is going to sleep well tonight!
