Everest Climbers Enjoying the Village of Namche

The climbers are on their way to Everest base camp and spent the day enjoying the village of Namche today.  They’ll spend a couple of extra days on their way up to base camp to acllimatize and enjoy the journey, and Namche is a favorite stop.  They went for a hike above town to a beautiful spot with views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, and Ama Dablam.  This is the first time on their journey where they really get a chance to see all of these iconic peaks of the Himalaya.

Tomorrow they’ll continue their journey up the Khumbu Valley, stopping at the famed Tengboche Monastery before continuing on to a nice lodge in the village of Deboche.
