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.

The gomba in Pangboche has more than 400 years and is the oldest in Nepal Himalaya. An in-depth tour really worths!

The teahouse where I'm staying in Dingboche. This town is used as a base for shepherds during summer months, anyway, due to increasing tourism, there are now also several teahouses open year-round.
