Today our trekking and climbing teams moved up from Namche Bazaar past the Tengboche Monastery to the village of Deboche along the Imja Khola river. Madison Mountaineering guide Terray Sylvester provides a recap of the day.

Today we trekked from Namche Bazaar (3440m/11,290ft) to the little village of Deboche (3820m/12,532ft). We had nice weather along the way with more views of Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse. We stopped for lunch at a little town called Phungi Thenga. Then we crossed a suspension bridge across the Dudh Koshi river, which means “Milk River” because of the color of the water from the glacial silt in it. Then we ascended the long switchbacks up to Tengboche Monastery at about 12,700ft, checked out the monastery and some of the other sites around it and then walked down the last 20 minutes to Deboche.
We’ll be in touch!
