Everest Base Camp and Khumbu Ice Fall

 
 

24th April, 2011-From Gorakshep

After waking up in frosty tents, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast. It is amazing how the chefs in Base Camp are able to cook such marvelous food in a tiny little cottage made by stone. Before lunch we continued socializing with our new friends. That is how they spend most of their days in Base Camp when they are not climbing Khumbo icefall -they socialize. After another great meal we watched some of the cleaning sherpas preparing their camp for the next few weeks. Finally Saving Everest is showing itself for real in the region. Suddenly the clouds came as we were heading back to Gorapshep. Another trek in a mild snowstorm was ahead of us. Soon in Gorakshep we now are resting and planning for a new adventure tomorrow -trek to Pangboche!
