Hello everyone.

We had a wonderful day again here in Nepal. We started with our usual breakfast and coffee at 8:00 and hit the trail around 9:00. Since it’s been rather cold here this spring, we haven’t wanted to start hiking too early. The team was very fortunate to spot a rare Musk Deer and even saw a few mountain Tarr, which is a type of Himalayan mountain goat.

We made our way to Pangboche where we visited the highest ranking Lama in the Khumbu and received a blessing for safe passage.  We continued along the trail passing by the iconic Ama Dablam and slowly came into Pheriche.

The team is doing great and enjoying the amazing scenery every step of the way.
