Benegas Brothers Expeditions

Our team enjoyed a wonderful rest day in Namche, trekking up the the Everest View Cafe yesterday before rest, coffee, and shopping for the odd last buff!

Today we left early for Deboche, starting out from Namche with magnificent views of Everest and its jet stream, Lhotse and Ama Dablam.

The whole team is doing exceptionally well, and having tonnes of fun. After few tea stops and a delicious lunch, and also bumping into Nima Sherpa who summited both Cho Oyu and Makalu in 1 week in 2014, we took a secret shady trail up to Tengboche, avoiding the sun on the normal trail, and enjoyed soft footing on a beautiful trail.

We are now resting with our usual Argentinian touches: mate, picada, y cartas! Tomorrow we hope to visit Lama Geshi as we pass through the ancient village of Pangboche, to requedt his blessings for our Expedition, on our way up to Pheriche at 4300m where we will spend two nights under a soaring Ama Dablam.

Love from all to home!
