We are now surrounded by giant Himalayan peaks; Everest, Nuptse, Lingtren, Khumbutse and Pumori tower above us. Today is very long and hard as we visit Everest Base Camp. The trail from Labuche climbs steadily by the side of the Khumbu Glacier, and after crossing glacier rubble we arrive at Gorak Shep (5180m), a summer yak-herder settlement siuated at the foot of Kala Pattar.
After a short break and snack, we set off for Base Camp. The trail heads along the crest of the moraine at first and then drops onto the Khumbu Glacier itself, where we get magnificent close-up views of the great Khumbu Icefall as it tumbles down from Everest. In the spring season, we will see expedition teams as they prepare for an ascent. We retrace our steps to Gorak Shep for the night.
