Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Reach Namche Bazaar

Elevation: 11,300'

The team had a very nice rest after our last night in Kathmandu. The city was a hoot, but back here in the high country is tough to beat.

All business today.  After a nice breakfast of French toast, guess we should call it Nepali toast, we started ascending to Namche Bazaar. A little overcast made for pleasant travel.  We are now officially in Sagamartha National Park, which encompasses Mount Everest. We climbed more than 2,000 feet in great style and are now resting comfortably at a tea house in Namche Bazaar. Located at over 11,000 feet makes for a planned extra day here for rest and adjusting to these altitudes. So important to not ascend too quickly. The A team is consuming a lot of great food, but that is a good thing.  Remember you can’t run a bulldozer on a pint of diesel!
