11th April - 2013 - Trek to Gorakshep and Everest Base Camp
 

Pemba, Karina and Marcelo headed up to Gorak Shep today with the aim of Marcelo going to Base Camp.  He has limited days until he returns to Brazil.  The rest of us made a very leisurely trek to Gorak Shep, easing our way through the lower moraine of the Khumbu glacier.  This will be far enough for Obie.  He has done very well to get to 5200m.  From Gorak Shep, the views of the Khumbu Icefall, Base Camp are excellent.  Everything feels very close now but this also means that the trekkers will return down valley, leaving the climbers to get down to business
