We made it to Everest Base Camp today. After seven days of very hard trekking – I would rather call it climbing – we finally reached our goal: Everest Base Camp at 5,364 metres (17,700 ft.) Today’s hike was brutal. Many elevation changes, scampering over huge boulders, loose gravel, drop-offs on both sides several hundred feet with occasionally less than one foot of trail. Amazing to hike right on top of the Kumbu Glacier. An amazing achievement fo both of us. Unfortunately we lost four of our original six-pack due to AMS and severe difficulty of the hike.
