Everest Base Camp Trek & Island Peak Climb: Grom & Team - Feels Like Christmas in March

Elevation: 11,300'

Greetings from Namche once again.

Today we were greeted with a fresh blanket of snow in town, but only a few inches. We had planned on doing a little hiking to try and catch a glimpse of Everest, but the new snow and cloud cover kept us close to home. So we spent the day drinking coffee, telling stories and doing a little shopping in town. It almost felt like Christmas to be honest!

Everyone is doing great and happily enjoyed the relaxing day here.

I’d like to wish my dad a special Happy Birthday! Wish I could throw a snowball at you pops! I love you.
