Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
Climbing high above Pheriche to adapt to the thin air was a great idea! The view was magnificent and it was excellent training. Once we got to the old Stupa monument we could some of the highest mountains of the world! We also had a good look at the potato fields of Dingboche nestle under mount Ama Dablam, and the climbers got their first glimpse of Island Peak known as Imja tse locally.
Then we were buzzed by a buzzard… actually a Cinereous Vulture to be precise (pictured below). One big bird!
The Khumbus are sleeping well and climbing even better so our sensible schedule seems to be working. Tomorrow we’ll move up to the minuscule village of Lobuche. We hope to see you there.
All our best, Carole & Vern Tejas and Team Khumbu
