Today we went to Lobuche Italian Piramid at Lobuche which is an Italian research station built as a pyramid. This is a place where they do experiments on the human body to see how the high altitude affects the body and mind. We discussed the possibility to do some tests on the summit, but we will discuss that on the 28: th of April with the chief of operations.We spent few times there then we headed towards Gorakshep.

We arrived at Gorakshep it took us three hours to reach here. Gorakshep is the last stopover point for overnight stay for teahouse trekking where there are few lodges and guest houses. Mostly the tea houses trekkers go for hike to Kalapatthar and come back to gorakshep for overnight stay and similarly they go to Everest base camp and come back. We had lunch in Gorakshep. There was lots of snow fall at the moment so we couldn’t do anything rather than sitting inside fireplace. Tomorrow we will go to Everest Base Camp.
