EBC 4 & 5: And So Onwards and Upwards

‘Tengboche, Pangboche and finally Dingboche – the end of our ascent. 4,410 metres at Dingboche, but we climbed higher to look down the valley to Everest Base Camp, 2 more days ahead. These 2 days of cold and hardship were not on our agenda. A medley of pics following, some with explanatory notes.’ (Della Again)

Dung patties drying in the sun for cooking fires

Yaks becoming more prevalent

A welcome stretch of newly made road

Entering Pangboche

Just one more corner before Dingboche:

Our accommodation at Dingboche: The Snow Lions Lodge

View from our window in the morning

Such organised and tidy lives!

Gotta love a yak

Mission accomplished!

Some solid climbs!
