It was a big descent today as we walk for nearly 10 hours and drop close to 1000m in altitude.
The descent has finally begun! As much as we've enjoyed the challenge of getting to Everest Base Camp, bring on the lower altitudes, warmer temps and more oxygen!
THIS. IS. IT. Today's the day we push for Everest Base Camp! With our bodies struggling to get the oxygen they need, we had to dig deep to make it to our goal.
The trek from Dingboche to Lobuche was our favourite - very few inclines and absolutely stunning scenery every step of the way!
A beautiful, clear day in Dingboche, however only one of us was feeling fit enough for an acclimatisation walk.
Now climbing to an altitude above the tree-line, we were reaching the stage of the trip where people begin to fall victim to Altitude Sickness. Today's itinerary had us trekking from Tengboche to Dingboche.
Another big climb today as we ascend to Tengboche. With both illness and injury slowing us down, things are starting to get real.
