RoadToEverest Log #6

It was acclimatisation day at Namche Bazaar. After a healthy breakfast, we took a slow climb to the Tenzing Norgay Memorial and Museum.

It was sunny and the skies were clear.

At the memorial we had got some good views of Mt. Ama Dablam far, far away and Mt. Kusum Kanguru but the spotlight was on Mt. Thamserku towering at 6608m above sea level. There were still no views of Everest because of the weather conditions up high. After enjoying the mountain views and refreshing, we returned back to the guesthouse.

After lunch, we took a stroll down to the streets of Namche, making conversations with Sherpas who ran shops there. It was amazing to meet these Sherpas and talk to them about life in the mountains.

To end the evening, we went to the edge of a cliff near the entrance of the village and sat there to watch the snow falling over Khumbila peak, the sacred protector mountain of Namche. The whole village was then engulfed in clouds again and had us packing back to the guesthouse to keep us warm.

The next day, we moved further up the trail to Tengboche village.
