    At the bottom of the top

    December 1, 2016 in Nepal ⋅

    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.

    Crossing the 4000m mark

    November 29, 2016 in Nepal ⋅

    Of course there's not an actual mark, but I knew we'd get to 4000 just before our tea house, which is at 4070 ;-) I can tell the altitude a bit as I'm going slower than usual, especially steep inclines take more time than they would otherwise. But we're in no rush and got to our destination around 3pm.

    We had a fantastic day! So many beautiful views, some even of Mount Everest (picture 4). Picture 5 shows you the last 40 minutes of our hike to our little tea house, which is the last building on the hilltop, where I'm chilling and writing this as you can see in picture 6 :-)

    Tailwind trails

    December 3, 2016 in Nepal ⋅

    The morning was crazy windy, but as it was a tailwind, we did not complain and made our way south https://goo.gl/photos/LL2ierEhGg1Qinwu9

    Today was definitely one of the most scenic days! We took a less-travelled route going west, leading along a cliff with spectacular views and with a few mountain goats, joining us on the trail :) We got to Phortse in the early afternoon and since it was a beautiful sunny day, I finally got to do all my laundry. And had great chats with the teahouse owners who became so wealthy since the tourists started coming to their region, they sent all their 4 kids to college in the US. Interesting stories: these people live 2-3 days walking from the next airport and 5-6 days from the next bus stop. What a life!Read more

    Fleeing elevation :)

    December 2, 2016 in Nepal ⋅

    Starting today, we're going downhill and my headache is thanking me! The fast and steep incline above 5000m yesterday was a bit too much... ;)

    We got to our guest house in the early afternoon and took a half rest day. Most of the afternoon, I played Nepali, Swiss and German card games with fellow hikers and guides. Feeling great and energized again!Read more

    Day 6 - Tengboche to Dengboche

    January 4, 2017 in Nepal ⋅

    Today was a really hard slog. I think the days of being sick and not eating properly have caught up with me.
    It is starting to get really cold. I woke up to frozen toothpaste and sunscreen and all our hoses on our hydration packs froze as we walked!

    Day 6 Thyangboche/Dingboche

    September 29, 2017 in Nepal ⋅

    7h 8km Elevation: 4410m

    We started the morning at 0500 to watch the sunrise, surrounded in an amphitheatre of mountains.

    Left at 0730 down stone steps through rhododendrons, birches, and conifers.

    The trek to Dingboche then took us out of the woods into the Alpine ecosystem with shrubs and copious amounts of little flowers. Midway we crossed the 4000m mark.

    3/4 of the way we stopped at a lookout point with the junction of two rivers. The sight was just overwhelming - white rocks streaming down a hillside like a river.

    Day 7 Dingboche

    September 30, 2017 in Nepal ⋅

    Elevation: 4410m

    This is an acclimatisation day and we hiked up Imja Khola to 4700m. Back down to sleep low. A chilled day and time to wash laundry, charge batteries and get the kit ready for the next 3 days.

    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.

    Day 10 Gorak Shep via Kala Pattar to Phe

    October 3, 2017 in Nepal ⋅

    Saw a different view of Everest today, with a trek up to Kala Pattar. Known to have the best views of Everest, this is a challenging trek, but worth it. Did not go all the way and stopped at 5300m

    Began the descent from Kala Pattar, heading for Pheriche. This is not the most challenging of hikes, but the altitude made the many uphill sections below Gorakshep seem tough. The view were quite spectacular.
