Phakding to Namche Bazaar
Today the base camp trekking team and the Everest climb team trekked along the Dudh Koshi and up the big hill to the capital village of the Khumbu, Namche Bazaar. Expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provides the details of the day’s trek:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Everest expedition team and trek. Today we trekked from Phakding up to Namche.
It was a beautiful day, with some nice views crossing suspension bridges over the river gorge and of some snow-capped peaks. We had a nice lunch in Jorsalle en route.
We arrived at Namche this afternoon, checked into our rooms, and walked around town a bit. We just finished a nice dinner here, and we’re looking forward to a good night’s rest.
Tomorrow we are excited for an acclimatization hike and a rest here in Namche!
All’s well in Nepal and we’ll check in soon.
If climbing Mount Everest is in your future, please contact our office, we would love to have you climb with us!
