Namche Bazar : Acclimization day.

We left Kala Patthar Lodge at 09:15 and took the rest of the morning to trek just 2.5 miles although we did climb 1,312ft.

We also stopped at the Army Post and the Museum and at the highest point Shyangboche Panorama for a nice cuppa.

Looking south we could follow 'The Milk River' flowing toward Monjo almost 4Km away and over 3,000ft below.

Altitude: 12,601 feet (3,841m)

Dedicated to the memory of Uncle Charlie and the crew of submarine HMS Swordfish
