Fall 2018 EBC Trek Having a Ball in Namche!

Namaste Friends, family and loved ones!

We burned up the trail today gaining 2,500 in the process. We officially entered the national park this morning. There were lots of pack animals on the trail which gave us many opportunities to have impromptu rest breaks. You can see pictured below the gigantic Mani stones and beasts of burden.

One of the highlights of our day was crossing the longest highest bridge in the whole Khumbu valley. It’s festooned with prayer flags and scarves. When you cross it it becomes obvious why there are so many prayers being said.

Everyone is pleasantly fatigued from our days effort but they remain in great spirits.

All our best, Vern Tejas
