Hanging in Namche...

Today we trekked from Phakding to Namche Bazzar, a very scenic hike wind along the Dudh Koshi river in a deep river gorge filled with pine trees. We crossed the river several times on suspension bridges covered with prayer flags, and finally climbed the "big hill" before reaching Namche.

This town is awesome, Namche is the referred to as the "Capital of the Khumbu" because it is a main trading hub between Nepal and Tibet. It is packed with tea houses providing lodging to trekkers & climbers, and has a few amenities such as a Pizza House, Bakery, and Cyber Cafe!

Right now we're chilling out at the Cyber Cafe checking email & updating our various blogs, etc, and enjoying some warm apple pie and cafe lattes!Life is good. Our plan is to do a short acclimatization hike tomorrow and spend another night here in Namche.
