Epic Everest Update #4

Rest day- Namchebazar, 19 April

Written by Brad Horn on Sunday, 20 April 2014. Posted in News from our guides in the field

19 April: Today was a rest day at Namchebazar (3300 metres). These “rest” days are important for the acclimatisation process to the altitude. We did nonetheless spend the morning on an acclimatisation trek up to the Everest View Hotel (3880 metres). The hotel offered awesome views of Ama Dablam (6812 metres) and Thamserku (6623 metres). Unfortunately Everest was shrouded in cloud however, I am sure that we will have ample opportunity in due course. We also visited Khumjung village in the valley below. This village’s school and hospital has been heavily supported by the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. 

The afternoon was spent finalising our gear. Namchebazar is the last opportunity to buy an additional kit we might need. Tomorrow we head to Phortse. Until then....
