Another beautiful day for trekking in the Khumbu where our Ama Dablam team has moved to just one day away from reaching base camp. From the village of Pangboche, expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provides today’s audio dispatch recapping the day:
We arrived this afternoon after a wonderful trek from Deboche, up along the river to Pangboche. We had lunch here and then went for a walk this afternoon and visited the chief Lama in Pangboche up on the hillside above the village here and had a blessing with him. Tomorrow our plan is another blessing at the Pangboche Monastery and then we’ll head up to base camp! Great weather here and we’re enjoying our time here in the Khumbu.
It’s great to be reacquanted with some of our local friends and families who live here.
