My Trip to Everest Base Camp
During the Easter break I trekked for 12 days in the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp.
The scenery was breathtaking – and the toilets took your breath away too!
It was a tough trek, due to the altitude. Base Camp sits at 5,364 meters (17,600 ft) above sea level – Ben Nevis is only 1,345 meters. The lack of oxygen made every step an effort (like walking with lead boots on) and gave everyone headaches. Walking for 9 hours a day sapped our energy.
Now I am back home I can reflect on my great adventure and have been sharing my experience with the children.
Here are some of the highlights that they found interesting.
