Doctor Researcher Group Everest Base Camp Trek 2018

8 April 2018, Trek back to Kyanjuma

Hello from Kyangjuma. A small village at the top of one of the hills. We dropped about 650m altitude. (4200m from Pheriche to 3550m Kyangjuma. We woke up at around 6 30 with wake up tea and had breakfast at 7 30. We were then ready to leave Pheriche at around 8 15. It was a clear and sunny day during the first part of the day. After lunch at Tyanboche at around 12 20, we had a steep downhill and the weather changed from sunny to cloudy. Still we were happy we were going downhill and not uphill. Then we had a lot of downhills and uphills and overall everyone was very tired when we reached our destination Kyanjuma. Nevertheless, the views were amazing, we crossed bridges, walked alongside yaks and buffalos, friendly Shepra kids waving at us and finally some green trees. Up until Pheriche there were no green trees, but it was intriguing to see how vegetations change as we move down altitude. Everything grey above 4000m to stating of green below that altitude. We are currently staying inThamserku Lodge and restaurant, had a lovely dinner and listening to ghost stories from our guide Ngwang Puri and having a lovely time. Its nearly time to head in our room and sneak under the blankets. But maybe another cup of black tea before that?
