Everest BC Trek & Lobuche Climb: Dale & Team Enjoy Snowy Walk to Lobuche

We woke up to a light blanket of white covering the yaks, high peaks, and trail.  Walking to Lobuche was peaceful and quiet with no wind and soft steps in snow.  It is nice to trek with one layer on and light gloves.  Chilly when we stop but perfect hiking temperatures.

We passed over Thok La today where there are carins,  rock piles, of memorials for climbers who have passed away in the Himalayas.  It is a peaceful spot with colorful prayer flags blowing in the wind.  Some of the climbers have plaques with poems or quotes reflecting their love for these mountains.  Now we are at Lobuche resting at 16,000 feet and visiting the world’s highest bakery.

The team is finding their stride well. Packing our duffel bags in the morning for the porters to take then helping themselves to our ample supply of French press Starbucks coffee (thanks RMI). Breakfast typically consists of eggs and toast or porridge.  Then we hit the trail and walk with water, layer, and photo breaks mixed in.  Lunch is at a tea house where we order soups, pizzas, or rice dishes.  Then a few more hours to our village for the evening.  It’s nice when the rhythms of the days start becoming easy to people and we fall into a relaxed mode of exploring these valleys.
