13th April, 2013 - Hiking Day 

Today we slept in and started our day trip at 9 am. Today’s trip we only did to acclimatize, and went up at a high hill above Pheriche. Some of us walked 500 meters up and some others continued another 150 meters. From the hill we had magnificent views over many summits including Mount Everest, Ama Dablan and not at least our goal, Island Peak! When we come back around 2 pm some of us were resting in a sun chair drinking Coca Cola (just what you think of when think on trekking in the mountain of Nepal :) others get a cup tee in the restaurant. After six days of trekking with lemon, ginger or black tee it was nice to get Mango tee for change. It has been very nice to have two days in Pheriche for acclimatizing, even if our rooms are (very) cold is the restaurant very nice and warm.  There we gathering with people of many countries, all with different goals. For example, a group of Iranians with Everest summit as a goal is lead by a man who has climbed the summit seven times. Tomorrow we will try to reach Lobuche at the altitude of 4910 m and the day after its time for Mount Everest Base Camp.
