Everest Base Camp Trek & Lobuche: Knoff & Team Enjoy Time at Everest Base Camp

Friday, April 1, 2022 - 6:02 pm PT

This morning was our first time waking up with thin nylon walls as our shelter instead of the plywood walls of our tea house rooms.  At Everest Base Camp, located almost exactly at 17,500 feet, the eery sounds of the Khumbu glacier popping and shifting, the rock and ice falling from nearby mountain walls and sleep sounds of your tent neighbors were all part of the range of audible noises heard as throughout the night.  

As the first rays of light creeped in we reluctantly began to pull ourselves from the warmth of our down sleeping bags and being careful not to rub the tent walls because of the frost that had condensed on them would sprinkle off and create an small snow shower inside the tent itself.   Estimated outside temps were likely in the high teens last night making it our coldest night yet.   

Once packed and filled with more food than our stomachs could bear, we said goodbye to the wonderful base camp staff and headed back the way we came, retracing our steps through growing camps preparing for their soon to be arriving climbing g teams.   

The days was beautiful and cool making the five hour walk back to Lobuche nice and comfortable.   After arriving back at the hotel eco resort, we began to prepare our bags and equipment for the exciting move to Lobuche High Camp tomorrow.   This shift from trekking to climbing mode has all of us psyched to be headed into the more technical and demanding part of our journey.  I think we are all ready.  

Stay tuned for a report from 18,500 feet tomorrow evening.
