Everest Basecamp Trek 2019 – The Buffs see Lukla for first time!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones,

We said goodbye to Namche Bazaar at the new and beautiful town fountain. We passed through the entrance gate and onto trail. Our descent was a mashup of suspension bridges and delightful water falls. Great weather prevailed for our last day.

The last photo shows our grand entrance of the new Lukla Gate. With ravenous appetites, hot showers, pizza and beer we enjoy the village. We look forward to the next chapter of our adventure with a morning flight to the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu.

All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
