And Then It Snowed

On Day 4, we walked out of Tengboche Monastery after the monks finished chanting prayers to find snow starting to swirl around us. Finished with our hiking for the day, we retreated to the warm comfort of our lodge, complete with iron stove and yak dung fire inside. In the morning, the world was soft white with a thin coat of snow–just enough for a little magic and not so much that it was any trouble. The yaks were utterly at home as we geared up for our day. Weather is generally sunny and clear this time of year, but it’s Himalayan weather: unpredictable.
