Mt. Everest Expedition: Team Hikes to Villages Near Namche Bazaar

Tashi Delek!  All is well here in Namche Bazaar.  We’re having a great time so far on the trek into base camp.  This morning we slept in a little bit and had a nice long breakfast.  After that we hit the trail for an acclimatization hike to the villages of Khumjung and Kunde.

Khumjung is the home of one of the Hillary schools and kids from all over the area walk there every day to attend class.  The villages all looked nice and tidy as the fields have all been freshly tilled and the yaks are all gone up the valley carrying gear for the expeditions.

We were able to catch a couple of glimpses of Lhotse and Nuptse but Everest was in the clouds all day.  That was OK though as Ama Dablam and Thomserku were out and looking very proud.

The team members are all doing well and are getting progressively more psyched as we head up the valley.  Tomorrow we will spend another day in Namche acclimatizing before we move on.
