Climbing above Namche
We all arrived in good time and good health yesterday and had a look around the great shops of Namche, the capital for the Khumbu.

Today we had a walk over to Khumjung to visit the Sir Ed school and the famous Khumjung bakery finishing the loop passing by the Everest View Hotel at a height of 3700m but sadly no view of Everest for two days now - we have had cloud, so better luck tomorrow on our trip to Pangboche.

Tonight we have been reunited with our some of our Base Camp Trekkers, who were delayed getting into Lukla by weather.
