Everest Basecamp Trek Whirlybirds tour Namche

Namaste everyone,

We had an awesome day around Namche today, taking in a hike with views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam! We were able to visit the school where the Alpine Ascents Foundation has built a kindergarten building and supports the education of 14 Sherpa children. Some members got shopping done in town enjoying espresso and pastries along the way. The team is all feeling great and we are rested up from our stay here at the Panorama Lodge. Tomorrow we head to Tengboche!

Thanks for following along
