We explored the steep and terraced walkways of Namache, gathering the last of our supplies like fuel for stoves and warm hats made of Yak wool.
We also are trimming and fine tuning our loads and supplies before we head NNE towards the village of Dhole at 14,200 feet. The following days will lead us to Gokyo. From this remote village we enter the uninhabited area of the Ngozumba Glacier and begin our exploration of the ice fields below Tenzing Peak.
Days are warm and nights pretty cool... even for a Minnesotan.
