Onwards and upwards - the trek continues
After supper at our tea house in Namche, our guide produces a surprise -
a DVD to watch -the 1953 film "The Conquest of Everest" It captivates
us all and brings home to us where we are.
Beyond Namche and ever upwards - A relatively short day after the long
pull to Namche. One of our group describes the walk to Tashinga (11,000
feet) and our overnight stay as "the best two hour walk in the world" We
stop many times to take photos and have stunning view of Everest,
Nuptse , Lhotse and Ama Dablam in front of us.
My room has a view of Ama Dablam and I spend a magical hour watching the light change as night falls.

Beyond Tashinga we head up another level through Pine forests to the famous monastery at Thyangboche (12,665 feet) . We are all acclimatising well now although we take it slowly. No need to rush when you are passing through such wonderful country.
