4th April , 2013 -Trek to Lobuche

Extremely cold morning, hardly wanted to get out of the nice warm sleeping bags. After a breakfast at Dukla tea house we started out uphill trek towards Lobuche at 5000m. Halfway we reached the memorial site for all the climbers that have lost their lives on Everest.

We met up with our new found friends Monica from Poland and Pavel from Check Republic. Diki gave us all a lecture on how to summit Mount Everest. Upon arrival we took a small hike uphill in Lobuche and we spotted our first glacier. At the lodge we also hooked up with John from the US who is part of the Peak Promotion team of doctors going to Base Camp. We are all having a nice dinner together at this cozy lodge.
