Ama Dablam Daily Report: Saturday 18th October

Namche Bazaar (3440 m)

The team had a good day hiking up to Namche Bazaar.  The trip took about 5 hours.  René has found the elevation change of approximately 700 m from Phakding has made him a little "light headed".  The mountains are beautiful.  The team members are all feeling good.  The lodge is 5 star quality with excellent cuisine, bedding and en-suite showers.  René spent some time today writing up his MSc notes.  He is still awaiting his trekking bag which should catch up with him later today.  Tomorrow the team will have a rest day to acclimatise.  A short hike to Khunde/Khumjung in the morning will keep the legs fit and strong.
