Everest: up, up and away!12/11/2011
Now at Namche Bazaar at 3583m for two nights under blue skies.
Acclimatisation kicking in and walking is progressively harder!
Free day yesterday so we hiked to the Everest View Hotel at 3880m to get further acclimatised – fantastic panoramic views of Everest and Amu Dublam.
6am start today. Four of our group of eight are hiking to Phortse Tenga at 3600m but low clouds obscure every peak!
Two of the group have bad colds and two have teeth problems.
A colder start, but we’re all excited …. up, up and away!
