Today was a big day. Many parts of this trek have special significance. Today was the infamous climb to Namche Bazaar. Not only is this the home of the Sherpa community but it was our first major climb and hard physical day. Our group crossed several high suspension bridges across the Dudhkoshi River. Then we started the nearly 1500 foot climb to Namche Bazaar. We got our first glimpse of Everest in the distance. The group did fantastic. There was no let up in the ascent. We all felt the altitude today. After reaching our destination, we did a short acclimatization climb to the Sherpa and Mt. Everest museum. The Sherpa museum was amazing with pictures have all sherpas who have summited Everest including our Sherpa, Migmar Sherpa. It is a beautiful museum that attempt to pay honor to the strong and dedicated people. Our Sherpas have been amazing and will do all they can to make our trek enjoyable and safe. David Breshears joined us tonight and will be speaking of the recent events at base camp from which he just returned. More adventures to come.
