Dave reported from the Everest Base Camp Trek team in the village of Tengboche. This is a small cluster of lodges and home of the famous Tengboche Monastery. It’s a beautiful stop on the way up the Khumbu, with the sounds of the Bhuddhist monks and views of the peaks coming into view through the clouds. The iconic peaks of the Himalaya, including Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and of course Mount Everest, begin to show themselves above the horizon from Tengboche and continue to dominate the view as they continue higher into the Himalaya.
