Bhandar, Nepal, Everest View Trek Photos

In the morning the mountain of the night before was visible. After breakfast at the friendly family-run lodge the second day was a mostly downhill trek to Kinja. The Buddhist monastery in photos 4 and 5 was in Bhandar. Sherpas carrying massive weights were always awe-inspiring.

The first day of the 100-mile Jiri-Gokyo Everest views trek was a tough three mountains rollercoaster, with lots of steep inclines and declines; I think over the highest peak in the first photo: in the left hand corner as viewed.

Shivalaya was reached around lunchtime, and the woman in the fourth photo provided a free tea. The day’s hike ended by torchlight in Bhandar after dark. There were lots of ‘namaste’ greetings along the way. Here’s some photos:
