It was a grueling day. We walked from Lebouche to Gorekshep (- 17,000 feet). Had our lunch and headed to EBC (- 17,600 feet). After spending some time at EBC, we are back in Gorekshep for the night. It was a gorgeous day with sunshine and clear skies. The views of the majestic mountains made the Trek worthwhile. Unfortunately, the internet won’t allow me to load any pictures, so I will have to add pictures when I have better connections. Thanks for everyone’s best wishes and comments.
We arrived in Lebuche this afternoon from Dingboche. Walking over 12KM and climbing almost 2,000 feet is a unique experience. Every step is deliberate and every incline is felt. Walking in this beautiful heven is the solace that keeps you going. Every breath feels precious. Beauty is changing constantly as the clouds reveal or hide the surreal mountain range in all directions.
Tomorrow we ascend to Everest Base Camp and begin our return descent, as there is no place to stay there!
