    Quest For Everest - Day 8

    December 16, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Early start again. It was a bit warmer last night at -8c. We started a six hour trek to the next destination of Lobouche (4910m) It feels like another planet walking through rocks and small bushes with the odd yak showing it’s face, it’s a very surreal yet stunning experience.

    We arrived at our lodge, checked into our room and hiked a little higher to 5000m to over look the Khumbu Glacier, a huge glacier that pushes its way though the valley from Everest.

    Tomorrow we wake at 6am for our trek to Everest Base Camp, so close to our ultimate goal now, everyone’s in good spirits, a little tired but all good, oxygen at this height is now 53%, small steps help and we will reach the goal tomorrow!
