Famous Ama Dablam mountain!
We are leaving namche and heading to Dhole. This is going to be a big climb for us today and we will take it slowly so we don't push AMS (altitude mountain sickness) onto our bodies. We are both nervous because most people use porters for this trip and we have questioned our body's ability to complete this trek ourselves. We are going to try it and just pay close attention to our bodies for AMS signs. The care for AMS is to go down in altitude. We do have an option for a shorter day today and we are not afraid to take it. It doesn't matter how strong or in shape you are....high elevation always rules the roost! Oh....we are going to pass Tashi and Lakpa's lodge today so I will send pictures in the next update. Lakpa and Tashi spend their summers in winter park, CO and many locals have grown very fond of them!
