Lhotse Lead Guide Greg Vernovage called in a few minutes (6am Nepal Time) ago to report that the team had a smooth flight from Kathmandu into Lukla yesterday and are currently en route to Namche (from Phakding). The weather is “perfect”. Greg says that the team is doing well and are anxious to get moving…
Today the team has the “Namche Hill” to look forward to – their first physical test of the trip. It’s a beautiful hike that includes their first view of Everest! Once in Namche they’ll have 2 active rest days to explore the surrounding area and the town itself (market, shops, restaurants, etc.) After three nights in Namche they’ll be well rested, acclimitized and ready to move higher.
That’s all for now…
