  • We made it - Everest Base Camp Trekking and Camp II Experience - The WMS Everest Experience 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    Patthar the highest point we will reach on the trip at 18 200 It was extraordinary We could see a ton of peaks Everest Pumori Nuptse Ama Dablam and a whole host of others The most impressive and new experience today I think was the birds eye view of the Kumbu Ice Fall WOW We could see the colored tents of B C and felt we would be there before we knew it We snapped a thousand pictures and did more Group Photos in an effort to try and encapsulate the unique landscape our eyes could barely comprehend Just as the scale of the mountains have been deceiving so was the quick trek to camp We trekked and trekked and trekked The ground under foot tested our hiking skills to the max We walked in perfect lines through alpine tundra bounced and wobbled through challenging boulder and screw fields and finally skipped onto the slippery glacier trails We wondered who had the best shoes for such varied terrain conclusion the Yaks Our mouths gaped open for many reasons including the thin air the grand Himalayas the spontaneous avalanches from a safe distance the yak woman throwing rocks at the camera

    about to break the 16000ft barrier We started off with walking the long valley up to Thokla where we had lunch During the trek some of us learned the noble art of maneuvering a yak You shout out a distinctive Cho Then you whistle and slap the animal on the rump It all seemed to work A lot of us were slightly worried about the lunch in Thokla prior groups have had problem with GI tract infections after eating at this place That information had not reached me I ate the whole plate with momos and everything Just as I had finished my meal I learned about it Wongchu said the food was okay though and so far I am feeling fine After lunch we did a steep trek up to Lobuche which is situated at almost 5000 meters That for me as the only non American in the group means a lot more to me than 16000 ft After arrival we were once again greeted with tea Then Wongchu brought us even higher up the hill for a short trek The concept is hike high sleep low From Lobuche we have a wonderful view of Nuptse which is a

  • Trekked from Namche to Tengboche - Everest Base Camp Trekking and Camp II Experience - The WMS Everest Experience 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    had a great start by staring only at Desi s head Wangchu stopped mid bridge to point to something on the side and the severe chest pains hit Dave actually yelled at everyone ahead of him NO NO NO Just keep moving Dave was then unable to recall the Hail Mary Chest pains resolved with firm ground and a big kiss to Desi s head From there our trek went uphill sharply A light rain kept the dust down without really making us uncomfortable Wongchu was keen to pause regularly to let us catch our breath He also pointed out a mountain deer for us Much fewer songs were sung on the uphill climb Sleet joined the rain but our activity kept us warm Snow started just as we arrived at Tengboche The tea house is a large structure with a very warm common room Hot water shower are good you may not have known that The individual rooms are small but we noticed that our presence in them warmed them quickly Wongchu led us on a brief trip up to the Stupa that sits atop the hill above the tea house This will help us sleep better we are

  • Rest Day- Everest Base Camp Trekking and Camp II Experience - The WMS Everest Experience 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    began our hike Today as Saturday and that means that it is Market Day The locals were all preparing as merchants to sell their goods and it seemed to be very busy even though the day has just begun We climbed some stairs and took to some trails Our first visit was the Sherpa Museum From there we could see Lohtse through the clouds but were unfortunate in our hopes of seeing Everest From there we walked back down to another Sherpa Museum were we were able to look at some interesting artifacts and view a slide show of the Sherpa People Then it was time to Zoom Zoom up the trail The trail was steep and was mostly zig zag shaped until we reached the crest only to find another hill to climb Wong Chu took it slow and easy and we all stayed together until we reached Syangboche where we had lunch The tea house was near an old dirt runway that was used in years past and looks like it could still be used today for small airplanes After lunch we climbed to the Khunde Hospital and through the village of Khunde Khunde was a town that was established 200 to 300 years ago We went to the Khunde Hospital but they were closed because it was Saturday There weren t many people visible but it was a village of what looked like a couple of hundred people It was clean neat and very quiet Hand crafted stone walls divided each and everyone s land claim Khunde was quite pristine to say the least Wongchu took us back a different way which involved some additional climbing but beautiful never the less We began our decent back to Namche on a different trail It was steep and winding

  • Phakding to Namche Bazaar- Everest Base Camp Trekking and Camp II Experience - The WMS Everest Experience 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    by scenes of daily life Nepali s leading teams of ponies and donkeys along the trail A Nepali boy leading his team of goats Children playing Porters carrying heavy loads up and down the trail By mid afternoon we had reached the entrance to the national park The trail became quieter then as there were fewer structures along the trail The hiking became steeper The weather held as we had just a small brief drizzle of rain during the day Crossing one particular large cable bridge covered in prayer flags over a blue Himalayan gorge in high winds was particularly exhilarating It was while in the national park that we began to see examples of the local wildlife including mountain goats jungle crows and the local pheasant Finally we reached Namche Bazaar For someone who has never been here seeing it for the first time is like visiting a place in a fairy tale It is the stuff of dreams A mountain city surrounded by the Himalaya All of us were soon in the Khumbu Lodge We had all made it safe and sound with no injuries Our Sherpa team bears full responsibility for this as the care and professionalism
