Sonam Dorje checked in overnight to let us know the December Trekking Team did great today. Waking up in Phakding is chilly because the sun is obstructed by the mountains on either side. A warm cup of tea and nice fire in the common room will do the trick to get the blood flowing! After breakfast, they set out to tackle Namche Hill. This is the first big test with trekking and altitude for the team. This team did great!
The team has now settled in at the Khumbu Lodge and will spend tomorrow acclimatizing by trekking up to the Everest View Hotel. The weather has been beautiful in the Khumbu Valley and we are hoping the team gets their first look at Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Mount Everest tomorrow morning.
All is well in the Khumbu Valley!
