Trek to Dingboche

Today we wake up early at 5:15 a.m to see the sun rise. There was no sun rise because of clouds but the light over the mountain was fine. So we had pictures of that. Then we had breakfast at 6:30 a.m. We packed our luggage and started to trek at 7:00 a.m. The way was frozen because of cold and when we stepped there it was slippery but we had fine walking on the way. Today we saw a bird; it was very nice which we don’t have in Sweden. We saw many mountains also today and river also. And we are near the mountains with spectacular view.

We had good lunch at Somare(name of place). Than after that we walk towards Dingboche and on the way to Dingboche was very windy. We are higher and higher but we don’t feel difficult to breath. We take it easy which is good. Today is the first time being in the 4400m. After having lunch at Somare(4000m) we cannot see more trees. And we reached to Dingboche it was so cold and after some time it started snowing. After resting in room, we went to the dining hall and played a dices that was really a fun. And we ate dinner. Now it is the time to go bed and here is very cold so don’t know how it will be tonight but hope we will have nice sleep. Tomorrow we will go to acclimatize and will stay at same ladge.
