Today the teams trekked from Phakding up to Namche Bazaar under beautiful, sunny skies. Here’s expedition leader, Garrett Madison, with the update from Namche:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Ama Dablam team expediton and Gokyo trek teams. We are in Namche Bazaar.
We had a wonderful trek today from the village of Phakding up the Khumbu Valley to Namche. Beautiful views crossing the supension bridges over the river gorge and making our way up the big hill to Namche. We’re all doing good.
It’s very quite, very peaceful, very beautiful here in the Khumbu Valley. Just a few other trekkers we’ve seen so far. It’s really nice to be reaquanted with some of our local friends and family that we stay with when we come to visit Nepal. They’re very happy to see us.
We look forward to another great day here tomorrow in Namche!
