Everest Base Camp Trek climbs to Namche!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones.

Rain abated and we got an early jump on the day. We could see all the mountains as the clouds parted. The first half of the day we pleasantly walked along the Dudh Kosi River. After we crossed the river the terrain steeped as we gained 2,500 feet and we entered the trading village of Namche Bazar.

Folks are in fine spirits and the team looks like they adapting well. Tomorrow we will take several acclimatization hikes and take in the views.

We saw the elusive Danfi at rest break. The iradecent bird is the national bird.

Stay tuned for tomorrows cybercast so you can be part of the action.

All our best,
Carole and Vern Tejas
