At Namche...first yak clinic tomorrow

Namaste from Namche Bazaar (11,200')!

The team is doing well as we arrived in Namche today and will head up and over the hill above to Khumjung tomorrow for our first yak clinic. Because we have enough product, not to mention there are now a lot of burros used for portering in the Khumbu (was not the case in 2009), we are going to offer to deworm them as well. On the way up the hill to Namche we got a spectacular view of my old friend Everest. I missed this shot two years ago. I hope this message finds you well. I am not sure when I will have such good internet access but hope to post again soon.


  1. Hello. I am John and I work with Andy's dad. He sent me the link to your blog. I trekked in the Khumbu in 2006. Followed almost the exact itinerary, although ours was not as aggressive as yours (whew!). Did not go to Goyko but instead climbed Imja Tse (Island Peak). Also made it to Everest BC and up Kala Pattar.

    I want to say thank you for your work with the yaks. I know they are quite important to the locals and their ability to make a living there and also know they are thankful. God speed.
