29, 30 October - Back to the Starting Point

On the night of the 28th, we stayed in the village of Phakding, nursing the colds we had all picked up, and the next morning slept in until 7:00 a.m. (We only had a three-hour walk into Lukla, so we…

27, 28 October - Back into the Green Regions

Today was a gorgeous morning--a gosling day, as they say in PEI. We walked out of the Pheriche valley ; trees (mainly juniper) began to appear, as well as flowers and shrubs and tilled plots of land,…

21, 22 October - The Monastery in the Clouds

We left Namche Bazar in a light drizzle which soon turned to snow, but we soldiered on cheerfully, across a mountainside and past the stupa (memorial) to Tenzing Norgay and the Sherpas who helped Sir…

19, 20 October - Into the "Sacred and Mysterious Tracts"

"The tops of mountains are the unfinished parts of the globe," wrote Henry David Thoreau over a hundred and fifty years ago. "[They} are sacred and mysterious tracts..." After breakfast (Tibetan…
