Namche to Dengboche

The trek from Namche Bazar was a fair, warm day.

We hiked in the Khumbu valley with each turn revealing yet another incredible view. About two thirds of the way into the hike’ we descended to the Dodh Kosi river for lunch. From there, it was a 2,000-foot hump to 12,732 feet and the Thyangaboche monastery.

Nothing like gaining vertical at altitude!

We quickly descended to Dengboche where we stayed at the Rivendale lodge. Jim and I thought we’d drawn the short straw when the guides didn’t know where are room was. But, after a quick inspection, we found that our room had its own SHOWER with a toilet with TOILET PAPER!!!

There were also great views of Everest and Ama Dablam…

I've spent my life enjoying life's challenges. From sports to the outdoors, to my professional career, and in my personal life, I've always enjoyed big challenges. Over time, one learns that you can win some and lose some, but you never win if you don't try.
