Hiked to Debuche

We left Namche Bazaar this morning and hiked to Tengboche (best bakery in the entire Khumbu region - I had a brownie and a slice of lemon pie) and then descended to Debuche. The weather has been beautiful with blue skies every day. We plan to stay here for two nights and then move up to Pheriche which is at 14,000'. We have been deliberately going slowly to acclimatize.

Debuche is a tiny little village - nothing like Namche Bazaar which is the biggest village in the Khumbu. There are lots of shops there along with bakeries, money changers, pharmacies, etc. I think Debuche only has a handful of buildings, although we are staying in quite a nice place.

I have noticed that some of the postings are in tiny font and occasionally in different colors. I don't know why this is happening. I have played around with the formatting options and they don't seem to help. Sorry.


  1. Thanks for keeping us updated. We're enjoying following along from the arm chair :)

  2. Hi Robert,
    The up dates are great.
    When there is no post we can assume you're okay, that it's because of time or connection?
    Best Wishes
