Namche Bazaar

Acclimatizaon day in Namche, get used to the increasing altitude. We hiked up to Khumjung (3800 m). On the way there were great views on Everest, Ama Dablam and other great peaks. Also some airy paths where you can look down in the valley 2000 meters and up at the mountains 5000 meters vertically!

We saw the most amazing thing at the Khumjung monastery: in the middle of the holy room there was a metal box and for a small donation you could have peek at a hairy skull, claimed to belong to Yeti, the mystical snow man.
