7th April , 2012 - Namche bazaar to Khumjung

Acclimatization day. Which mean, a round trek to Khumjung at 3800 meter in order to get used to a higher altitude but return back to starting point in Namche Bazaar and spend the night at 3400 meters.

We started with a visit to the local market, and continued to the Everest viewpoint museum, from where we got our first glimpse of Everest (The black rocklike peak in the centre of the picture with a jet streamed snow plume blowing from the top).  There we chilled out in the sun and checked out the museum, which displayed Sherpa handicraft and the wildlife and history of the Khumba valley.

After that we started our ascent to Khumjung, following a very steep trail. We stopped at the Everest view lodge to have a “fika” without seeing much of Everest due to the deteriorating weather.


In Khumjung we went to the local monastery, by giving a small donation we got the opportunity to view the famous Yeti’s scalp looked up in a box. Now we are back at the Khumbu lodge, chill out time. We all feel great.
