Everest Basecamp Trek 2019 – Yetis move up to Pheriche!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones!

We could see the headlights of climbers ascending Ama Dablam in the night. They were summiting when the sun came up.

We crossed over the wild Dudh Kosi river one last time before it forks in two. We are celebrating a big festival in Nepal known as Tihar. Today is special for honoring brothers. So Carole honored cousin-brother Gopal by painting a special ketchup based Tika on his forehead. Then we were all blessed by the visit of Kami Rita Sherpa who has climbed Everest more than anyone (24 times).

Everyone is strong and healthy however we’ll spend a day acclimatizing here in beautiful downtown Pheriche.

All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
