I slept good at 2,835 m last night in Monjo and i was ready to start another beautiful day in the Himalayas.

There are no signs but it is pretty clear which way you should be trekking. Felt really good as i was out of Dusty Kathmandu and into the fresh air with beautiful backdrop of stunning Himalayas.

What made it more beautiful was when i found just myself surrounded with the beauty of Nepal. Although thousands of people come to trek every year, it was still raw and untouched.

I was excited to get to Namche Bazzar today because I was going to staying in one of the finest hotel in town. Namche is basically where it all starts and at 3,440 m is where some people get sick as well. So, acclimatizing here for a day or two is a good idea.

It was just my second day in the EBC trek but i was kinda already missing comfort of my home. So, knowing by the end of the day, i will be on a comfy bed with great view was a great push to continue walking.

Let me introduce you to the best place to stay in your second day…Here it is The Classic –  Yeti Mountain Home!

We walked in and were welcomed with friendly smiles and classic trekking photographs hanged on the wall.
While waiting for my room to be ready, me and my porter were served tea and biscuits as well. I thought that was a nice gesture.

Checked in, went to my room. I was thrilled to have this stunning view of Namche Bazzar from my window, not one but two beds and electric blanket – ALL TO MYSELF!

Oh and the HOT shower! Little things that we take for granted at home, means a lot in the Himalayas. I didn’t expect any luxury at all but was pleasantly surprised.

Showered, rested and now it was time for food.

We were served mushroom soup for entree, fried rice for main Lunch and tea/coffee. Yummy!

I should also mention I teamed up with Yeti Mountain home and arranged for my porter to have his own room and food all paid as well. He was pleasantly surprised! If you don’t already know, Porters in Nepal don’t have high salary. They work hard to make their ends meet, forget about staying in luxury hotels. Thank you to Yeti Mountain Home for being so kind and generous.

After an awesome meal, I went for a nap followed by strolls around Namche Bazzar. Cute little village town filled with tea houses and couple hostels but i must admit Yeti Mountain Home has the BEST VIEW of Namche and super good food.

I was happy to have chicken soup for entree, beef sizzler for my dinner and some cut up apple for desert. It was delicious and sitting by the fire writing my diary made it more homely.

My bed was comfy and warm over looking huge mountains and Namche Bazzar below my window. I slept like a baby dreaming about the rest of the trek.

In the morning, breakfast was alright but that view made it tastier i think. I went outside to take some pictures and found myself touching a pile of washing. It was frozen! I had almost forgotten it reaches minus degrees in Himalayas specially in the nights. I left thanking electric blanket and Yeti Mountain Home.

I must add here, staffs at YMH were well trained and friendly. I will definitely go back if i were to do this trek again in the future.

    Hot shower, mushroom soup, a window with a view and a pretty red cushion to rest on…what else does one want from a Himalayan home! Even the cookies look delightful.

    Your pictures are stunning,. Yeti Mountain Home sounds like the perfect place to ‘regroup’ before continuing further on your Himalayan hike.

    I couldn’t imagine making this trek! Sounds like a great (and more comfortable) way to do it though! Have always wanted to visit Nepal

    I enjoyed watching your video. The sizzling dinner looked delicious. It was probably the kind of meal that locals are craving to eat. I like the bedroom because it’s just simple but comfortable. The view was amazing. I’d definitely want to stay here if I’d have a chance.

    You rightly remarked about the little things that we otherwise take for granted at home. That hot water shower and a good night’s sleep in a good weather. Sometimes I feel thankful for that. Coming to the Yeti Mountain home, it’s cozy and cute. And the views from that window are stunning. Not sure if I would ever feel like stepping out if I stayed here

    Hot shower and soup…..the only things that I would want to! I don’t think I will ever be able to do what you’re doing right now.
