Climbing Ama Dablam Day 5: Trek to Kyanjuma (3450 m.)

After breakfast, we start on the trail alongside the Dudh Kosi (Milk River) which originates from the Khumbu Glacier some 50 kilometres away. We cross the river four times on the route today on some quite exciting (but very well constructed) suspension bridges. We enter the Sagamartha National Park at Monjo and stop for lunch at Jorsale. After lunch, we may get our first views of Everest on the way up the switchbacks to Namche Bazaar (3,450m). In Namche Bazaar, we convene at the Everest Bakery for Coffee and Chocolate Doughnuts and then continue along the trail to stay with Tashi and Lakpa Sherpa in the village of Kyanjuma. Today we will walk about six hours to our destination.

Walking gets children to spend some time outdoors. Children spend less and less time outdoors learning to play and having them walking to school and walking outside helps them enjoy the outdoors more.

Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Yaks and Yetis

Materials Needed: A large number of pylons

Activity Description: Have the pylons spread out around the gym, roughly half should be stood up and the other half toppled over on the ground. Split the class in half. One half will be yetis and the other half will be yaks. When the game starts, the yetis will go around making the pylons stand up, while the yaks will be going around pushing the pylons down. After a while have the class switch roles and repeat.

    Is the Lapka one of the Lapkas we had on the 3 Cols trip? Reading your blog is like (but not quite) being there! Thanks, Paul Bucca
