Into the cold thin air.
I walked from the comfort of Namche Bazaar to the far more austere abode of the monks at Thyangboche today. The trail follows a ridge above the Dudh Kosi passing a Stupa before continuing to Sanasa then descending steeply to the river below at Phungi Thenga. It was here that I stayed in a small lodge when I came by last time unwilling to climb the trail to the monastery. Today I’m both in good spirits and good form and after a cup of tea, I climb to Thyangboche in one go.
