Rest and Acclimatize

Hi, this is Seth writing you from the Everest Bakery and Cyber Cafe in Namche Bazaar. It’s a beautiful day in the Khumbu.

Our schedule calls for a rest day today in order to allow our bodies to adjust to the altitude here. It’s kind of strange to have to acclimatize to a location that is a fully functioning town. But a slow and steady approach to basecamp is necessary to keep us healthy for the upcoming climb.

Namche is a beautiful village located in a high amphitheater surrounded by craggy peaks. The town is bustling with trekkers from all over the globe which give it a very cosmopolitan feel. It’s the Sherpa capital and it’s cool to see all of the guys moving through town on their way to basecamp. It must be climbing season.

The team is doing well and everyone is enjoying the trek so far. A few of us were able to get a glimpse of Everest this morning, which was great. It’s as big as I remember!

Tomorrow we are taking a day hike to the village of Kumjung and hopefully we’ll be able to get views of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and of course Everest.
