Walk to Everest Base Camp

In November 2014 I finally got to do the walk to Everest Base Camp. After a false start in 2013 where Carmel and I went to Nepal to do the Everest Base Camp walk but ended up being defeated by the weather and not able to fly into Lukla we ended up doing a trek on the Annapurna Circuit which didn’t quite hit the spot for us. Unfortunately Carmel couldn’t come with me in November 2014 to do the Everest Base camp walk so this time I went solo. I actually hired a guide and a porter in Kathmandu and just used tea houses along the way. Again the weather played its part I lost one day in Kathmandu again because of the weather but managed to do the trek in 13 days. 9 days to get there and 3 and a half days to get back to Lukla with the usual anxiety at Lukla due to weather but managed to get back to Kathmandu without incident.

Below is my favourite picture from the trip – Everest Base Camp – Success!!
