Namaste Friends, family & loved ones,
Exceptional weather today for our last day of hiking. We started bright and early and climbed 1,200 feet to cross the Zatrwa La Pass at about 15,150 feet.
It was all downhill from there— more than a vertical mile. We navigated hundreds of snow covered rock steps, descended dirt and scree trail, dropped into rhododendron and bamboo forest, crossed more than several “rustic” log bridges and finally, over 7 hours later, we cruised into Lukla.
Here, things really got exciting as the team rushed to put in their dinner orders of chicken chilly and raced off to hot showers and a change of clothes.
We’ve had a great last two days of hiking on exciting trails and are hoping for good weather tomorrow for our flight back to Kathmandu. Tonight, we will celebrate!
The Whole Crew!
Thanks for following,
Carole and Vern Tejas
