1st April , 2012 - April Fool’s Day

We have entered the 6th day of our journey. During the morning, right after breakfast, the walk is rather difficult. The breathing gets heavy but things get better after some time. We have been trekking at altitudes of more than 3500 m. The view of the Everest just gets better as we approach the next stop. There are high mountains and deep valleys all around. The weather is rather dry. We see fewer trees now. We arrived at Tengboche (3876 m) late in the afternoon and visited the monastery, which is the highest monastery in the world.
