6th April , 2012 - Everest Base Camp

Today was a very hard but special day. After an early breakfast we started our walk towards Everest Base Camp. We did the first stop in Gorashep at 5100 meters where we had lunch. The road was rather steep and the weather was not very good with a lot of clouds. After lunch we continued our way and passed the glacier called Khumbu icefalls. It took almost 3,5 hours to Everest Base Camp.  The weather got better during the way but still it was a challenge to get there. When we came to Base Camp we took a cup of tea in the tent of Peak Promotion. It was a lot of different expiditions at Base Camp right now. A very special placeJ After tea we went back to Gorashep. Today we have been walking for 10 hours on an altitude over 5000 meters.
