Everest Base Camp at 5364m, what an incredible feeling to finally be here! There are actually two base camps, the North Base Camp on the Tibet side and where we are, the South Base Camp on the Nepal side of Mount Everest, the more common route.
What now looks like an empty area full of rock and glacier, resembles a village full of tents and expedition equipment between April and mid-June. That’s because in that time the weather is the most stable and clear with the ice being hard enough to climb the summit. Yaks are mostly used to carry all the expedition equipment from Lukla along the Everest Base Camp Trek. Once arrived at the Base Camp, climbers usually spend 3-5 days acclimatize before making their first move up to Camp 1. An Everest expedition takes up to 2 to 3 months and, certainly, a ton of money.
Btw, don’t expect to see Everest from the Base Camp, it’s covered by another ridge. One of the best views of Everest is from Kala Patthar near Gorak Shep.
