Samden would like to share few more pictures of our teachers Lami Sherpa and Aruna Rai who had hiked to their birth hill mountain. Their destination is called Panch Pokhari, which in English translates to “five ponds”. There are five ponds in close proximity so, the place is called 5 ponds. It is also considered a sacred pond by the Hindus. Many people visit the pond for pilgrimage. The pond is at the height of 4350m i.e 14,271.00 ft. The team took 11 hours to reach the destination beginning at the altitude of 1800m i.e 5905.00ft. They spent a day close to the destination and returned the next day. Hopefully on our Facebook page!
