We follow the trail from Phortse Tenga down to Kyanjuma. Visit Tashi’s lodge again.

Cows are sacred in Nepal and are not eaten. Because the animal is holy, all traffic yields way to the animal and it can quite often cause a traffic jam if it stops within a highway.

Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Expedition Team Line Up
As you are making your way across a glacier, you and your expedition team are tied into a climbing rope so everyone can travel safety. For this ice breaker, we are going to form our expedition line by doing a simple task.
Pass out a card to each student in which they cannot show anyone else around them what card they have. The students must arrange themselves in numerical order as well as suit order i.e. all hearts, then diamonds, spades and then clubs along the climbing rope/line on the gym.
- They have to use non verbal cues to organize themselves in order
- The cannot show their card to anyone
Note: To make it easier just give everyone a number or they first letter of their name. To make it harder get them to order themselves by birthdays.
Today we turn our back on Ama Dablam (but will surely turn around and check out the view back onto the mountain several times) and trek back to Pangboche for our first showers and some celebrations.
