Quite busy at Khumbu Lodge this time. The dining room was full at night. I actually like the small dining room better though it was meant to be for sirdars and porters. It's more cozy.

Syangboche Airport

Syangboche Airport also known as Syangboche Airstrip is an unpaved airstrip serving the village of Namche Bazaar, in Solukhumbu district, Nepal. The airstrip is the closest airstrip to Mount Everest and Everest Base Camp. However, it is not often used by those going to either (or any other place significantly higher than Syangboche's 3780 meter elevation) as this is generally not viewed as consistent with safe, reasonably paced elevation acclimatization.
