12th April, 2013 -Trek to Pheriche

A few of us went up really early to see the morning sun hit the top of Everest. After a great Sherpa breakfast in the warm teahouse we started today’s walk almost the same time as the bells were ringing for a ceremony at the Thyangboche monastery. We started slowly and took some good pictures on the Thyangboche hill with several big Stupas in the front. Via Pangboche and Somare, were we had lunch we reached Pheriche in the late afternoon, quite tired. The weather is still good but is getting colder… We are now sitting in the warm tea house restaurant with the fireplace in the middle and all of us are hesitating a bit to go to our rooms. Right now the room temperature has reached three degrees, and sinking… Anyway we “finally” reached 4.000 meters above sea level today and we are promised a late morning tomorrow. After that we’ll climb up a smaller hill to acclimatize. Then we’ll start preparing for higher altitudes the day after tomorrow.

Thanks for now
