The moonlight making them sparkle and millions of stars twinkling. Sleeping tough due to the altitude, hard to breath. Up to 4600m. Following Douglas ridge high above the river. Continuing on toward Khumbu Glacier with great views of Mt Nuptse & Pumori. Humbling passing Rock Cairns dedicated to those who have passed. Reached Lobuche and is it cold. Dawning every piece of clothing available. Restless sleep 3-4 hrs. Morning cardio workout packing up. Today is Base Camp, very excited. Traversed the valley beside the Khumbu glacier toward Everest, spectacular. No vegetation. Most physically and mentally challenging day ever. Absolutely exhausted at the end of it. 5360m. Awoke Gorak Shep tea house around 5am. -10 outside -15 inside.
Climbing Mt Kala Patar. Most exhausting so far. Cliff Young shuffle 10-15 steps at a time. Reached 5618m and fantastic 360 degree view. Could see the trekkers on Everest, almost summiting. Descending, arrived in Namche for lunch. Afternoon off. No traffic to worry about, only cow/yak, donkeys or their hot steamers. Ended up in the highest Irish pub in the world. Lukla to Kathmandu, a little bumpy thru the clouds and landed safely. What an adventure.”
