The Private Trek had an incredible day on the trail. Up and out the door early from Namche, the team enjoyed beautiful views of the valley and surrounding peaks. Legs and lungs warm up quickly on this day of trekking as the team needs to start by taking a number of stairs to the top of Namche before the trail levels off for a couple hours. Around the bend, the team gets a beautiful view of Phortse before dropping down to the river for lunch. After lunch, it is time to drop into low gear and head up the Tengboche hill. The reward is the beautiful Tengboche Monastery.
Ang Jangbu reports that it is quiet in the Khumbu Valley right now and this trekking team has the place nearly to themselves!
