Following our 6am wake up knock with black tea being brought to the door we had breakfast and were off with the frost still on the ground but clear skies and great views now that the cloud had lifted!
After heavy cloud the previous afternoon this morning brought clear bright skies and we were treated to marvellous views of Ama Dablam to the northeast. We could also now see the valley to the south west and, with it, our path down to Kungjum for our mid morning break.
A good chunk of the day was spent retracing our footsteps with lunch at Namche Bazaar where we met up with Konchoc Doma Sherpa’s daughter on her stall and bought a necklace for Gina.
A long but thoroughly enjoyable walk down the valley – descending a total of 1400 metres and ascending about 400 metres.
A long day and we arrive much later than planned at Monjo but Tensi manages to get us into the main dining area.
