Trek from Pangboche (3900m) to Dingboche (4343m)

23 December 2015 - Departure time : 08:40 - Arrival time: 12:10

After a tour of the beautiful monastery in Pangboche, one of the oldest in the Himalayas, the trek continues above 4000 meters to Dingboche. Now the vegetation is almost completely replaced by flat junipers and the small towns are actually used only in summer as a base for shepherds.
