13th April , 2012 - Pheriche to Namche Bazaar

It was a long day for all of us, hiking from Pheriche to Namche Bazaar, losing approximately 2,000 feet in elevation with a lot of ups and downs in between. We awoke to a beautiful morning in Pheriche and had the pleasure of watching the Everest Marathon runners run past the tea house as we very comfortably tucked into our French toast, eggs and coffee. The marathon, from Gorakshep to Lukla, was postponed for two days because of weather. We were all amazed at these athletes and their task at hand. 

After a slow start and many hugs to the HRA staff (including their adorable puppy, Nima) we started our hike down the valley. Although most of us were a bit sore from all of the steep downhill, and some very serious uphill, we made it safe and sound in Namche late this afternoon. As soon as getting our room keys and setting our bags down, a few of us went shopping in the bazaar.

We also had the pleasure of meeting the next group of WMS Everest trekkers at our tea house. They have quite a few more people in their group but they look ready for the challenges ahead

Tomorrow will be another long day for our group, hiking from Namche to Lukla. We will be one step closer to the end of this amazing journey. Also, tomorrow Scott splits from our group and hikes back up the valley to Pangboche to start his journey to the summit of Ama Dablam. We will miss him the rest of the way but we are all excited for him and wish him a safe and successful summit!
