Fresh on the back of their successful Everest Circuit Trek, our team enjoyed a well-earned day of downhill all the way from Gorak Shep to Dingboche (2 days ago) and then yesterday from Dingboche to Deboche. After days and days of constant up I can tell you from first hand experience how fantastic it feels to finally get some downhill. And it’s even sweeter on the back of a successful trip which is certainly the case for our March 2015 Everest Circuit team.
Time to reflect
As this post is being released, our crew will no doubt be reflecting on their Everest Circuit success as they continue to walk down-valley. They are on the march again and last night was spent at the beautiful little hamlet at Deboche. Deboche is a beautiful little Sherpa village (more like 4 lodges than a village to be honest) nestled in the middle of the rhododendron forests below Ama Dablam. From Deboche there are still magnificent views of Everest and Ama Dablam to be had to the north.
A successful Everest Circuit Trek doesn’t just happen
A huge thanks to our fantastic Sherpa crew for their efforts in ensuring another successful trip. The feedback from the guests has been as good as it gets. Everyone is safe and well. The food was great and our back-up plans when the heavy snow hit worked seamlessly. We’re extremely fortunate to have such a talented team of guides and leaders.
I’m sure the team have started counting down the days to their next hot shower. Will they seize the day and enjoy the great hot showers at the Namche Hotel or wait for the luxury shower experience that awaits them at The Radisson Hotel in Kathmandu. If it was me I’d have one at Namche followed by a cold beer and a double serving of chilli chicken.
