We have teams moving uphill in the Khumbu Valley. Our counterclockwise Khumbu Trek moved from Namche to Thame (12,500’) today and is doing great. The weather has been fantastic so far for this team. They will take a couple days to trek around Thame and acclimatize before crossing Renjo La (pass).
Our 3X2 and Ama Dablam Teams have moved up to Namche today and will acclimatize tomorrow. They will trek up to the Everest View Hotel and around Khumjung where the monastery has received a face lift. They will still be able to see the famous yeti skull in the monastery. After the hike, the team will return to Namche for another night.
Down valley, IMG Guide Harry Hamlin reported a perfect day of weather for flying. Our Private Gokyo Loop Trek arrived with all of their gear and had a great trek to Phakding. This is a short day of trekking and the team will enjoy a great night of sleep by the river. Tomorrow, they will head to Namche!
