Elevation: 11,300'

Hello everyone back home.  All is well here in the Khumbu!

After so much time together bonding the team has decided to stick together and finish this trek the same way we started, together. Island Peak will have to wait till next time!

We left Pheriche and hiked downhill passing what seemed like a endless line of trekkers, climbers, porters, and yaks loaded with gear for Everest.  It was a beautiful but long day, and we have arrived in Namche after eight hours on our feet. Clear weather allowed us more amazing views and the chance for one more view of Everest before descending down to camp. The warm thicker air feels great and the team has just finished a nice dinner at our tea house “Camp De Base”.

Tonight we are having the world championship of cribbage!

Ditto the comments above! Especially Sasha’s “enjoy the descent!” Really, enjoy it all- we were amazed at how different the landscape was on our way back to Lukla.
Congratulations on fighting the fight and making it to EBC! We look forward to hearing the stories…
Be safe!
