We didn’t have far to travel today, which meant we could just enjoy our walk. We circled to the east of Khumbi Yul Lha, the mountain that dominates Namche’s views. One early stop for some honey ginger lemon tea and a last good look at the most beautiful of mountain, Ama Dablam, and we were back in Namche Bazaar.
It was good to see Wes and Tom again, reassuring to know they had survived their adventures on Island Peak. While Cho La Pass had been my sickest day, Wes had his climbing Island Peak. Nothing like tackling the hardest things you’ve ever done at far less than 100% to build self confidence.
