Everest Base Camp Trek: Thukla to Tengboche

Day 12

kiran chakravadhanula kiranc Everest Base Camp Trek: Thukla to Tengboche We have a long way to go today. We have to get to Tengboche from Thukla via the Pheriche valley. Our initial plan was to take the high path to Phortse but it got so windy that we had to abandon that plan and head down to Tengboche. Later, we realised that there was a weather situation building up that caused a 2 day flight cancellation at Lukla, high winds through the day where we were and snowstorm at Gorakshep.
