Everest Region December 2003 - Day 9

Chhukhung to Dingboche

The day ended up a bit of a fizzer. We had thought to wander up to the lake Imja Tsho, but also wanted to leave time to get to Dughla, back on the main drag going up towards Everest. So we just mooched around the bottom of the Ama Dablam glacier and then started to head back down the valley. When we got to Dingboche, we were told that Dughla was now "closed", the lodge owner having gone down to Namche. Not quite trusting the news, but not keen to have to then press on to Lobuche, we decided to stay at Dingboche.

Not much left to do but go and shoot some pool...
