This is a long post. Lots to say! Lots to explain… After the stress of last night, I don’t think Buck-30 or I slept much. We both were up easily by 5am and packing; wondering if we would make it out of the village without any further interaction from the supposed guides we negotiated with […]

May 5th Gokyo-Thame Distance: 13mi/21km* (mileages likely +10% underestimated) Trip Total: ~270.5mi/435km Teahouse Elevation: 12,533ft/3820m We got our regular 6am start so that we could a) hopefully make it over Renjo La Pass before clouds come in to see the view, and b) make it to Thame in plenty of time to meet up with […]

May 4th I did start my period overnight, and had a very tough time getting out of bed this morning in my very cold room. It was below freezing outside when I set off at 5:45am to hike Gokyo Ri to hopefully get my first view of Everest. The air was crisp, and the sky […]

May 3rd Dzongla-Gokyo Distance: 7.5mi/12km* (mileages likely +10% underestimated) Trip Total: ~257.5mi/414km Teahouse Elevation: 15,600ft/4755m This was so definitely NOT our day! We decided to sleep in and start an hour later today. We all could use the extra rest, it’s pretty darn cold up here, and we figured we’d make it over our high […]

It was a crisp cold morning, and we had a lot of uphill ahead of us. I mistakenly didn’t take Diamox last night. I thought I could make it one more […]

April 30th Phakding-Namche Distance: 7mi/11km* (mileages likely +10% underestimated) Trip Total: ~233mi/375km Guesthouse Elevation: 11,200ft/3414m We are taking basically double neros in Namche instead of a zero day. We thought we might want a zero, but we have good momentum going, so a good 24hrs in Namche is all we need. In a couple weeks, […]

April 29th Puiya-Phakding Distance: 11mi/18km* (mileages likely +10% underestimated) Trip Total: ~226mi/364km Guesthouse Elevation: 8545ft/2605m Today we finally reached Lukla, our first major town with modern services. Yay! This will be a more efficient and shorter entry. Since I finally got cell reception to post the blog and catch up on correspondence. I prioritized getting […]

April 28th Najingdingma-Puiya Distance: 12mi/19km Trip Total: ~215mi/346km Guesthouse Elevation: 8,974ft/2735m This entry will be pretty short. Today was not very eventful, and moved quite slowly for both of us. It started off with a rare morning rain. We were happy to be in a guesthouse where we could just pack up and go than […]
