After a great breakfast at Yak Hotel in Namche we started our trek to the village of Thame. The trek is easy and beautiful and goes through an amazing pine forest. The trail is soft and unusually flat for being in Nepal 🙂 After a few hours we reached Thamo. There we had a nice lunch in the lodge garden and enjoyed the sun and the views. After lunch the trail slowly got more and more steep and we started the climb up to Thame where we are going to stay the night.
Here we are staying at Apa Sherpa’s Lodge. Apa Sherpa is, together with Purba Tashi, holding the world record of climbing Mount Everest most times. Both has climbed the mountain 21 times! It is also in this little village that the legendary Tenzing Norgay (first – together with Sir Edmund Hillary up on Everest) was born. The mountain views from here are truly outstanding!
The lodge is full of people and we have had nice company of some swiss trekkers. After dinner we have played cards with our sherpas and porters and now it is time for bed! Everyone are feeling good despite from some head ache, which is quite common on this altitude. One more nice day have reach it’s end.
All the best from Nepal
