Today we walk along a very pleasant trail under the
soaring peak to Thamserku and steadily descending to the Imja river and
lunch at Phunki where there are a series of water driven prayer wheels. In
the afternoon, we climb steadily for about 2 hours to Thyangboche Monastery
(3875m) and the views from here are magnificent. The Monastery is literally
surrounded by mountains. Yaks graze on the small meadow and the
monks drone through their prayers. Surely, this is
one of the most beautiful spots in the world.
