Scene on the way down from Tengboche

After breakfast at our lodge in Tengboche we began our trek back down the way we had ascended. The wind in the village was still stiff and bitterly cold when we left. The lodge at Tengboche is on a ridge and so it would be naturally quite a wind-swept place most of the time.

Immediately we started down the steps on the southern edge of this ridge we were mostly in full sunshine and sheltered from the worst of the wind. It was not long and most of us had taken off our coats, then jumpers and most ended up in T-shirts for the descent to the river crossing.
