Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
The Yetis climbed to over 16,000 feet today to the small village of Lobuche. On our way we passed through one of the most hallowed places in the Khumbu. Many fallen climbers are honored with memorial Chorten monuments.
After arriving in Lobuche we took an acclimatization hike up the lateral moraine of the Khumbu glacier. From there the amazing upper Khumbu mountains surrounded us. It was a spectacular view we were treated to.
The team is starting to feel the altitude. A couple have reported mild headaches that have gone away. Beyond that we are in high spirits and wishing you a happy Halloween. Tomorrow we’ll try climbing Kala Pattar.
All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
