Resting and acclimatization in and around Namche Bazaar, the Everest team hiked up to the Hotel Everest View. Here’s expedition leader Garrett Madison‘s recap of the day:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Mount Everest expedition team. Today is April 6th and we had a nice rest day in Namche.
We trekked up to the Everest View Hotel and had a good view up the valley of Ama Dablam and Everest, but it was a little bit hazy because of the smoke from forest fires here in Nepal at the moment. We came back to our lodge, the Panorama Lodge & Restaurant, in Namche, had a nice lunch, and then explored the town of Namche in the afternoon.
We just had a good dinner and now we’re off to bed. Our plan is to head out tomorrow and trek up the valley to Deboche.
All’s well here in the Khumbu Valley of Nepal. 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!
