Today we woke up to gorgeous views of Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse
and after a delicious breakfast and some repacking, we walked for 20 minutes
to upper Pangboche village where we visited the high lama of Pangboche, named
Lama Geshe. He blessed all of the members of our trekking and climbing
expedition and all of our Sherpas too. After a few cups of tea we enjoyed a
leisurely 2.5 hour walk up to Pheriche Village at 4200 metres/13,750 feet. It
was a nice, slow paced, acclimatization day. Members enjoyed a few rounds of
cards in the warm dining room of our lodge and then had an early night,
beneath a gorgeous full moon.

Everest Nepal Blog: 14 April: Today our team walked from Namche to Pangboche.
It was a very beautiful day, with a lot of great views. It did snow part of
the way, although the snow did not stick to the ground. Also it was a bit
windy. One of the journey highlights was sighting a small herd of wild
Himalayan Tahr sheep on the slopes near Kyangzoma. Another highlight was apple
pie in Tyangboche. It is really nice to be in Pangboche, with stunning views
of Lhotse south face and even of Everest itself.
