Namche Bazaar ... a swirling pattern of Sherpa homes and hotels

I had reached Namche Bazaar on 4th Oct-07  i.e. on 10th day of trek from Jiri. The 11th day was Rest-day at Namche. I started on the 2nd Leg fromNamche to EBC & Kalapathar on 6th Oct 2007 and returned to Namche on 13th Oct 2007.  The following subpages descibes the trek from Namche to EBC & Kalapathar and then back to Kathmandu via Lukla i.e.  Day 12 to Day21.

Just outside my Namche-Inn room window was this 3-level terrace; where a tent-camp came up in just 2 hours ...  to accomodate a huge group of foreigners who reached soon thereafter
