Just to let you know that I was able to update the last blogs with the pictures but not the videos. Hope you enjoy.
Yesterday, 5 other people of my group and I headed for Kala Pattar at 4:00 in the morning.
It was challenging…… a steep climb up to 5,545 m ( higher than Everest Base Camp), cold….minus 13 Celsius…… but it was well worth it.
I took a short clip to show you. Here it is….
After that ascent, we started our descent.
It is still challenging as we are going up and down. It’s only at the end of each day we take note of the lower elevation we are at.
We increased the pace. it took us 9 days to get to EBC. We have 4 days to come back.
As we trek back, It’s interesting to see people who are heading in the opposite direction we’re heading. I feel for them and the challenges they will go through….. but what rewards…..
Tonight, we’re sleeping in Namche Bazaar.
Heading for my First hot shower in a long time…..
