Team Mera Hikes Up To Snow Line from Khare

Namaste Friends, family & loved ones,

We made the most of our acclimatization day here in Khare and hiked up a couple thousand feet to the snow line. We waited until the sun came up and walked in the warm sun. The trail was a mix of dirt and some boulder hopping. We were successful in avoiding small patches of ice along the route.

We returned to our tea house for a late lunch and spent the afternoon building more red blood cells. Due to a forecast of very high winds tomorrow, we’ve decided to stay put where we are and hold off our move to high camp for one more day.

Everyone continues to do great! Thanks for following,

Carole and Vern Tejas
