We left Pheriche early this morning and trekked our way through Thokla, this sits on the terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. We climbed to the top of Thokla Pass to view the climbers’ memorials draped in prayer flags. By midday we had arrived at our tea house in Lobuche.

We spent the afternoon relaxing and acclimatizing at our new altitude of 16,200’. Everyone is acclimatizing very well. We will spend one day here hiking and relaxing and enjoying the great views.

As we move through Lobuche and onto Everest Base Camp, communication can be difficult but we will do our best to keep in touch. Tell everyone at home “Hello” we are having a great time and are very excited to be so close to EBC!
