Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team in Dingboche

Elevation: 14,800'

Down in the low lands, below 15,000 feet. Bushes abound! Not as low as tree line but I will take it.

We were having too much fun up at Everest Base Camp and left a little bit late. Eight hours later here we are in Dingboche. We changed our location for the night based upon information that our lodge in Pheriche was booked full. Not a bad option since we were able to take the high route into here and will not need to climb a small hill in the morning from Pheriche. Our teahouse here in Dingboche is on the way to Island Peak.

Light snow showers started as we left Everest Base Camp and continued throughout the day. We were able to get John on the Khumbu Country Club for one par three hole. I hit a five iron spot on for a hole-in-one on this beautiful par three right out of camp. John ended up with a par, not bad. Short day tomorrow but lots of prep work when we get in to our last teahouse before tent time. All is well.
