We left Dingboche this morning in chilly weather but the sun broke out and warmed things up a wee bit within the first hour of our hike. Once again, the views were spectacular. The low “wall” in the photo below is made of sun-dried yak dung used to fuel the heating stoves up here. That’s a lot of dung! We took a pit stop in Pangboche, where we saw the baby yaks in photo two.
We arrived in Tengboche in time for a late lunch, followed once again by a visit to the bakery. Some of us also went back to Tengboche monastery, where we were lucky enough to watch the monks perform a long and colorful prayer ceremony.
FYI, the Team has a new signature scent. It’s called Sancho and its mentholated aroma is… unmistakable.
The Team is feeling good and moving well! We’ll report back tomorrow from Namche Bazaar.
