Everest Base Camp Trek: Grom & Team Arrive at Gorak Shep, Climb Kala Patar

Hello Everyone
It’s incredibly beautiful, peaceful, and the mountains are grandiose. We’ve been very comfortable hiking each day in the sunny weather, then bundling up in our warm sleeping bags each night as the temperature drops.

Once we’ve arrived at our new village for the night we check in to our rooms and take a small nap/break. We then often meet around 5pm for a little tea, popcorn, and card playing.
Dinner is often around 7 pm and the menu is pretty much the same at every tea house with plenty of soups, simple pasta, potatoes, and typical Nepalese Dal Bat. 
After dinner we relax and have a brief review of the day ahead and then it’s off to bed.

A few of us also hiked up Kala Patar to get a better view of Everest.

Spirits are high as we push closer to Everest Base Camp and if the weather cooperates, we should arrive tomorrow.

That’s all for now -

Hey!  I met Casey last year in Pheriche at the tea lodge we were lunching at in Pheriche.  He was leading an expedition and we were trekking to EBC.  It was so nice to meet him and the other folks on his expedition. 

I’ll be back to the Solo Khumbu region again next year in 2020 to trek the Gokyo Lakes route.  It’s off to Macchu Picchu this spring for me.

Good Luck on your Everest summit Casey!  Happy Climbing:)

Cheers.
Jamie
