Pangboche at Phu Tashi's

Hi Everyone following our Adventures, 

We had a big day coming up the valley from Namche and are now in a small but comfortable lodge in the charming village of Pangboche, owned by one of our Sherpa friends Phu Tashi who has done many expeditions with AC.

We had a quick look at the Tangboche Monastery before the afternoon cloud came in cooling us down and obscuring our views, so we then carried on down the hill, over the river and up here on the other side to Pangboche to settle in to the lodge for the night.
