Never End Peace And Love (14)

Day 14  Dingboche- Thukla/ Dugla (4620m) 21/01/13 As usual we were planning on leaving at 08.00 but after getting final bits of kit and food we ended up leaving at 09.00. Both our packs were heavier but I think mine was slightly lighter out of the two. The days walk itself started steeply, it was uphill … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (14)

Day 13 Dingboche- Chhukung Ri-Dingboche (5550m) 20/01/13 Today is our rest day and we were doing an acclimatisation climb up an easy mountain.  My alarm went off at 07.00 as usual; I decide to mix things up and I try Tibetan bread for breakfast (basically a large doughnut which was amazing). No more snow had … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (13)

Day 12 Deboche- Dingboche (4410m) 19/01/13 We awoke to snow, not drifts of it but a good inch blanketed the whole area. At 08.30 I said goodbye to the aussis and we parted ways. At the settlement Orsho we stopped for tea and noodle soup (another thing that was becoming standard to my diet).  Whilst … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (12)

Day 11 Namche Bazar-Deboche (3820m) 18/01/13  Yesterday I was lucky, Tracy (one of the Aussi dads) bought a medium pot of tea, it held about 12 cups of tea and I was given 4 of them for free (I think I upheld the British stereotype well). It was a fairly steady walk once we had … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (11)

Day 10 Monjo- Namche Bazar (3440m) 17/01/13 It’s becoming more and more of a struggle to get out of bed each morning as it gets colder and colder, it is that feeling of getting out of your nice warm cocoon which is your sleeping bag. Today we left at 08.00, we walked for an hour … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (10)

Day 9  Lukla- Monjo (2835m) 16/01/13 Today was more the sort of acclimatisation day I was expecting when I first started the expedition. We gained roughly no height but travelled several km up the valley. Along the way we crossed a number of cable bridges spanning the river, the longest was probably about 100m. Around lunchtime … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (9)

Day 8  Lukla again 15/01/13 The first night I have slept well since leaving England over a week ago.  I got up at 08.45 and I read for an hour before heading to the tourist office again to try and change the permit (you need a climbing permit for every different peak you climb).  Unfortunately it … Continue reading Never End Peace And Love (8)
