As we trekked deeper and deeper into the heart of the Himalayas, up above the snow line to a barren land of ice and snow where temperatures plummeted to minus 20, the views grew ever dramatic and breathing and trekking became ever more difficult due to the lack of oxygen in the air. Our itinerary was as follows:

Day 12 - Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (6 hours - 350m descent 750m ascent)
Day 13 - Acclimatization day at Tengboche

Day 17 - Leboche to Gorak Shep (2.5 hours - 250m ascent) including trek to Mount Everest Base Camp (4 hours - 5364m)
