Everest Base Camp Trekker Glenn Bacheller Reports From Namche Bazar!

We spent our sec­ond day in Nam­che Bazar. It start­ed with an acclima­ti­za­tion to a lit­tle over 12,00 feet. We were hop­ing for views of Ever­est but, unfor­tu­nate­ly, Moth­er Nature did not coop­er­ate. We end­ed the hike with a trip to one of the vil­lage’s monas­ter­ies which we had to our selves along with a chant­i­ng monk.

After the hike it was off to the vil­lage’s bak­ery for a sam­pling of a lot of good­ies. What a way to reward our­selves for our efforts on the hike. The rest of the day was spent searching…for the inter­net (down most of the day), show­ers (ones that either did­n’t scold or freeze us) and for that per­fect gift for some­one from the many mar­ket stalls scat­tered through­out the village.

I know I speak for every­one in the group when I say that we are so blessed to be in this incred­i­ble part of the world and to be sup­port­ed by such won­der­ful peo­ple as Dean­na and the rest of the staff. Thank you Moun­tain Madness!
