After finishing our favorite game of ‘where the heck is namche?’ no one wanted to hike. The original plan was to have a short day and sleepover in Monjo, then finish up the trek with a 5 hour hike to Lukla. The only problem was we were currently lodging in Nepals finest tea house, the panorama lodge. The working Internet, hot showers, and REAL porcelain bowls as toilets were just the beginning of why we all loved this place so much. The true draw is the family who runs it.
End note. We did this content not buy topamax want to leave. This took some finagling, but since we were basically on our own trek (aka carneys/mike MacNair) it was just convincing Lapka that my dad could handle another 12 mile day…luckily he’s very good at negotiating.
We spent our rest day sleeping in, having a long lunch down in town, and not thinking about our dirty clothes we had to put back on.
