Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
We climbed up along the Khumbu glacier moraine for a few miles until we actually drop down onto the medial moraine. We were able to catch glimpses of Everest several spots along our circuitous route. And at last the moment we’d been waiting for, we entered the Base Camp area.
We made our way back to Gorak Shep for lunch before we continued to drop elevation by hiking back to Lobuche.
Last night was rough as we slept at above 17,000 feet so we are looking forward to a more restful night at our new lower elevation. Tomorrow we head even lower to Dingboche, the potato capital of the upper Khumbu valley.
All our best, Carole and Vern
