Everest Base Camp Trek: Grom & Team Arrive Namche Bazarre

It was another beautiful day here in the Khumbu with clear skies and astounding views. Our day started with breakfast at 7:30 with eggs, toast, porridge, jam and plenty of fresh coffee (thanks Tucker). We hit the trail just after 8 and made our way up the valley crossing numerous hanging bridges covered with prayer flags. Tea houses lined the trail almost the entire way making it easy to stop for a rest, eat and snap a few photos. We made good time even while sharing the trail with other Trekkers and the countless yaks carrying loads in both directions. Along the way we were treated to a nice view of the far off Mt Everest (still about 25 miles away). There was one big hill to climb before reaching Namche Bazaare where we’ll spend a few nights in order to properly acclimatize.
Everyone is doing great and currently are out exploring Namche (population of a few thousand) which is the heart of the Khumbu and Sherpa people.

Aloha Chris. It’s your sister-in-law from Kauai.  We are really proud of you for undertaking this big challenge.  I think I will just stick to hiking the beaches!  Good luck and stay safe.  I know Nancy and Sammy are anxious for you to get home.  Mary Kay

Enjoy those en suite baths for the next 2 days.  Good pizza and pastries. You are living large.  Shop owners in Namche are thrilled to see you all no doubt.  So glad to read and see the photos.
