Entry 5. Nepal: The trek to Mount Everest Base Camp - The Classic Journey to the World's Highest Peak.
2014 confirmed group date: December 17 to January 1, 2015. Visit Everest Base Camp on Christmas Day!
Standing on the mass of moraine and ice surrounded by frozen tundra and glaciers, I looked around and felt so blessed – this was it; this was the Base Camp of books, IMAX movies and dreams realized and shattered. Mount Everest Base Camp, 17,500 feet, high in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. I was filled with awe. I was standing on hallowed ground where so many had come before.
While we could argue that there are better hiking trails in the world, what makes this Himalayan trek so special and challenging are the elements you constantly battle: blazing sun, numbing cold, panting in the high altitude, walking over rock-strewn trails shared by other trekkers, porters, guides, local “commuters” and trains of hairy yaks. This trek has it all!
