Island Peak – Namche Bazaar (3445m)

Written By: sean on April 16, 2017 No Comment

The group reached Namche Bazaar today. Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu Valley.  Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche rests in. Halfway up the hill, a gap in the trees allows for views of Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear, the top of the South-West Face is just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the summit.
