Everest Base Camp

10th April , 2012 - Everest Base Camp

Early morning we started from Lobuche. The plan was to reach Gorakhshep but it seems Gorakshep is busiest place on the EBC route. People heading to EBC and KalaPatthar rest here. We found the place to be crowdy and for hygiene we decided to move ahead. After lunch as we moved from Gorakhshep to EBC the snowfall started. As we were reaching the BC the Khumbu Icefall unfolded from the valley. There was a news of big avalanche in Khumbu in early morning. Fortunately there is no causality.

Before we reach our base camp sherpas already set up our tent. Each climbing member will be having separate tent for the cause of hygiene. There is kitchen tent, dining tent and communication tent. There are other expeditions too from other part of the world. Base Camp is like a small village of more than 500 people. There is medical facility available run by HRA (Himalayan Rescue Association).
