It's All Downhill From Here

May 24th, 2017

Namche Bazaar, 3440 m

We are back in Namche.  Same lodge.  Even same bedroom, for that matter.  The only difference is that it’s 12 days after the first time we were here and in the meantime we have trekked 100 or so kilometres, climbed to over 5000 m half a dozen times (including all three passes we set out to cross), have seen some amazing views of four of the six highest mountains in the world (Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu), and eaten about 30 pounds of dahl bhat.  1,147 more words

First Flight to Lukla

As we trudged into Gorakshep (5,164 m / 16,942ft), literal meaning ‘Dead Crow’, sucking in mouthfuls of air with only around 54% the oxygen at sea level, already weary and only 12 o’clock, we knew it would be a long day. 7,749 more words

The day started early for I wanted to capture a few images at sunrise (5:52am). I didn’t sleep particularly well anyway. I think its the jetlag mainly and a little bit the altitude (3,600m) that I need to get used to. 519 more words
