13 April - Hi this was a David , we’re on the last of our days in Namche Bazaar. It’s a great place to acclimatise, relax a bit and spend money in the well stocked outdoor shops. Who doesn’t like an outdoor shop? In fact there are endless ways to remove your hard earned cash here with fancy bakeries, alpine style restaurants and an Irish bar. I think Owen and his dad have been seen in there a few times.

11 April - Hi this is David sitting with the team in the Hilltop Lodge with great views over Namche Bazaar. We managed to dodge the rain on the walk up here and will have a rest day with a short acclimatisation tomorrow.

11 April - Had a wonderful relaxed evening in the Sonam lodge , it wasn’t busy so we could spread out and enjoy some big food and chat . It’s a peaceful place with the sound of the river below to drift off to sleep to. Lovely send off this morning with a ceremonial scarf presentation from the owners.

April 10 - This morning, we embarked on a scenic flight up to Lukla airport. Despite its notably short runway, our landing was smooth. From there, it was a relatively brief walk along the Dudh Koshi river course to reach the tea house in the next village, Phakding.
