Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Enjoying the Many Sights of Namche

Elevation: 11,300'

What a great day in and around Namche Bazaar!  Views outside of our hotel show the surrounding peaks rising about 20,000 feet.  We are all fully energized with these spectacular views and went to one of the bakeries and coffee shops to start our morning.

Namche has many shops we can meander through during our rest day.  The team and I spent some time perusing through but remembering to not overload our packs on the way to Base Camp.  Try and buy it on the way out is my recommendation.

We will continue to enjoy the clear views of all the mountains today and the perfect weather. I know we are in for another beautiful day for the climb to Deboche tomorrow.

Elsie, Missy and Allie,  looks beautiful in the Khumba—know you will love the monastery!  Glad you restrained yourselves from shopping—there is also a cute little shop outside the bakery in Debouche.  We are enjoying a snow day from School and thinking of you.  Take care.  Xoxo. Renee

Elsie, you look so happy! Just wanted to let you know that I am reading and keeping up. It is snowing big time here - a virtual winter wonderland. I sat next to Rocket at the Symphony concert on Thursday. There was a lot of percussion, so I hope he liked it ;). You all be safe and I will keep up with the blog. It looks like a picture out of a novel! Hugs- Mary
