    Kala Patthar

    October 25, 2016 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Der Kala Patthar ist mit 5580m der Aussichtsberg zum Khumbu Gletscher und zum Everest. Da derzeit keine Expeditionen stattfinden und somit am Basecamp auch nix los ist, sparen wir uns den Weg was hier Keiner verstehen kann. Frägt man die Leute aber, was es da tolles zu sehen gab, ist die Antwort "Nix". Nur weil jeder am EBC gewesen sein muss. Wir hatten einen tollen Tag mit einer gigantischen Aussicht auf den Everest. Gleichzeitig kommt man sich bei dem Anblick dieses Kolosses klein und unbedeutend vor.Read more

    At the bottom of the top

    December 1, 2016 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    I'm too tired to write a long post. Most challenging day. We got close to the bottom of Mount Everest. Here, the altitude was getting to me. 5300m today. Sleeping at 4900m. Hiking was strenuous, every step takes all of your concentration. Now I'm ready for a long long sleep.

    Day 9 Lobuche/Gorak Shep/Everest Base Ca

    October 2, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Elevation: 5300m

     We left Lobuche at 0600 and arrived back at the tea house at 1700. 10hours of walking above 5000m

    It started snowing last night and it continued into the day. We got to Basecamp early afternoon.

    This was a tough...tough day

    The higher altitude maked this day's trekking quite challenging. The Changri Glacier looms ahead as the trek heads for Gorakshep, a small, usually frozen, lake, by lunchtime. Relaxed and got adjusted to the altitude before the attempt to reach Everest Base Camp

    After lunch, we trekked to Everest Base Camp. The route follows the Khumbu Glacier with its intriguing 15m (49ft)-high seraces of ice, a feature unique to Himalayan glaciers. Returned to Gorakshep for an overnight stay.
