Everest Base Camp-Here I Come! (UPDATE with Photos)

Recommended Posts

how much experience to you have at that altitude?  stay safe and have a good time.

dh grew up with dsil's cousin - who summited Everest at least once (without oxygen), and not sure how many attempts. (I know of at least one other that was unsuccessful within 2000ft.)  he said the sunrises were gorgeous - but no one wanted to get out of their tents if they didn't have to because it was so cold.

Hats off to you! When I turned fifty, I sat at a beach, nibbling smoked salmon, congratulating myself for having made it this far...🤣

Looking forward to pics and updates.

I will be taking Diamox and acclimation days are built into the schedule.  Hydration and a slow pace will also help.

I went to Nepal two years ago when I was 47.  The group I went with stayed in Kathmandu for a week and then trekked to a village for several days to stay in a homestay.  We went with a company called Five14 Nepal.  This was my first real trip outside the states.  I am so glad I went.   The people and the mountains are beautiul.

Looking forward to OP's follow up.

Oh how exciting.   My DH and I hiked to Annapurna base camp a number of years ago.  Nepal is just amazing and the people are so wonderful.  Have a fabulous trip!   I’m super jealous.

Wow. It looks so cold, and from you wrote it was COLD. I feel so wimpy.

What a step off the beaten path! Congratulations. You have COURAGE and an incredible sense of adventure.  Let us know when your book gets published.
