Namche Rest Day

First View of Everest

Expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provides a recap of today’s rest day at Namche:

Hello!  This is Garrett calling in for the Mountain Hardwear Mount Everest Expediton autumn season.  Today we had a rest day in Namche and went for a hike up to the Mount Everest museum above town and had great views of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, and Ama Dablam.  Beautiful day!


Then we came back down to the Panorama Lodge for lunch and shortly thereafter the rest of our crew arrived by helicopter!  So we went over to the helipad and greeted them.  We then spent the afternoon together drinking coffee, enjoying Namche, and we just finished a nice dinner.


It’s great to be all together here and we are looking forward to a good acclimization hike tomorrow up to the Everest View Hotel.  All’s well here in Namche.
