    Quest For Everest - Day 9

    December 17, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Well today is Everest Base Camp day, we leave Labouche for a 3 hour trek to Gorak Shep and an incline to 5165 metres. We had a quick lunch and then proceeded to our ultimate goal Everest Base Camp a total elevation of 5365 metres. Will we make it??

    It was amazing walking side by side of the Khumbu Glacier a huge mass of ice covered with ice and rocks hearing it creaking and moving and the odd avalanche on the mountain opposite.

    I have to say Gorak Shep was the coldest, dirtiest and smelliest place I’ve ever stayed at, all part of he experience I guess but when your peeing five times a night due to the diamox you have to go to toilet with frozen water and piss on the floor, not pleasant!!!
