Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
A big drop and climb awaited us. We descended all the way down to the river and back up the other side to the famed location of the Tengboche Monastery. The monks know a good location when they see one. This is probably the best place to view Everest.
Just getting here was fraught with peril as we experienced a “Yak Attack”of epic proportions. Now that spring has arrived the headers are moving hundreds of yaks to high pastures. Of course there is only one trail and we were obliged to share it with a Yak parade!
On our visit to the monastery we were impressed by all of the art that adorns the gate (third photo below).
Team spirit is running high as we get higher and closer to the mountains that we came to experience. For the most part we are adapting well to the thin air. We continue to climb conservatively and deliberately.
All our best, Carole & Vern Tejas and Team Khumbu
