11th April , 2012 - Pheriche to Dukla

Grey weather and a really soft trek to Dukla at 4600m. We walked along the open plains at the Pheriche valley (the day mainly partly to be remembered for the two black dogs that followed us all the way). When ascending the main altitude we met a really friendly mountain guide, Tendi (friend and Nepalese relative to Diki). He had summited Everest 10 times at an age of 28, apparently the most sought after bachelor in the Sherpa community.  We were happy to receive an invitation to his expedition tent at Base camp.
