Enjoying an active rest day in Namche Bazaar, the teams hiked up to the Everest View Hotel and enjoyed… (wait for it)… some wonderful views of Everest and the surrounding peaks! Madison Mountaineering guide Terray Sylvester provides a recap of the day:
Hello! This is Terray calling in for the 2022 Madison Mountaineering Mount Everest expedition! It’s Wednesday, April 6th. Today our trekkers and climbers hiked up to the Everest View Hotel, about 1,000ft above Namche Bazaar. Along the way we had great views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Everest in the distance – just cystal clear skies. Then the clouds came in and we hiked back down to Namche. Some of us took a detour thru Khumjung (3790m/12,430ft) where they saw what is purported to be a skull of a yeti in a museum and a few others of us when and visited a new Sherpa cultural museum here in Namche with some really interesting history and artifacts.
Tomorrow we’ll continue on up past Tengboche Monastery to Deboche (3820m/12,532ft) and we’re looking forward to that hike. There should be more great views along the way!
So, all is well here and we’ll be in touch.
