Everest Basecamp Trek 2019 – Trekking Yetis are “THERE” in Dingboche

Namaste Everyone,

The Trekking Team bade farewell to Vern and the climbers this morning and we Trekkers headed downhill to Dingboche. It was another bluebird day, although slightly on the breezy side. We took our time and stopped to enjoy the views, the warmth of the sun and the thick air. All combined to make our walk today thoroughly enjoyable.

Once in Dingboche, we downed burgers for lunch (thank you Nyima!). We capped off lunch with some desserts and a movie at the French Bakery in town.

All is well here. Tomorrow, we’re looking forward to more bakery action in Tengboche on our way back down the valley.

Thanks for following!

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
