Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
We spent a relaxing day acclimatizing in Pheriche. This morning we headed up the moraine behind town hoping for a good view from up on the ridge. As we started out, the fog rolled in and we climbed in low visibility … until we reached the top of the first ridge, when the sky cleared… and WOW. What views! We meandered up the ridge and stopped a couple of different times to rest and enjoy.
This afternoon, we attended a lecture on high altitude medicine at the Himalayan Rescue Association post here, and then hung out around the Yak dung-burning stove at our teahouse.
We are all feeling great— tomorrow we will move up to Lobuche!
