Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Visit the Tengboche Monastery

The team did fine work of packing up, grabbing a quick breakfast then good-bye Namche. Hello to Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Teboche, Cholatse, which are just a few peaks between 20,000’ and 27,000’. Of course, the big one, Mt. Everest at 29,035’ was also out in full bloom under clear skies and warm temperatures.  No we didn’t climb any of them, just enjoyed them from afar.  Another great job by the A team. Tackled the Tengboche Hill in fine style and just as we arrived at the infamous monastery, a monk began blowing through a giant conch shell announcing the afternoon prayer.  We abandoned our boots at the entrance and spent some time in the ornate sanctuary listening to them chant. A few nice photos and twenty minutes down the hill to the Rivendale Tea House for the night. A full day to say the least.

So proud of you Nancy!  You are a great inspiration to me.  I even did a minor climb…I went to the top of Diamond Head.  Keep you’re spirits up.  You’re in my thoughts & prayers everyday.  Love following you’re experience as it is happening.
