Got to the top to watch the sunrise on everest with my guide Dilman. It was easier than expected, as I was well acclimatized.
10-06-2019 The day after reaching EBC with Jugal, Devin, Larry and Manu (our Nepalese guide for the trek). Jugal proposed to Devin on the summit with all of the spectacular Himalayan peaks in sight.
Left from Lobuje and headed up to Kala Patthaar without a tour, so no waiting!!
Sunny and feeling good, went and did Everest Base Camp and hike down to Lobuje in a snow storm. Weather changes very fast!!
It was a clear and beautiful day. Started early from Gorak Shep. Reached the summit after about two hours. Was a bit crowded on the top but then again it was peak trekking season!
A cool bluebird day with excellent visibility
Side climb on route to EBC, Views of Everest at sunrise
Easy trek from Lobuche. Great view on Pumori and Everest!
Starting at lobuje and hiking to gorak shep for lunch, then up the ridge for great views of Everest. Super great day!
Views on way up buy clouded over as we summited
After two nights in Gorak Shep and a hike to Everest Base camp, enjoyed a leisurely stroll up the hill the next day in beautiful sunny weather!
Everest doesn't look that impressive from the top. Tibet IS the better place for that :)
Climbed it around noon when I arrived to base camp b/c it was clear and I wanted to make sure I saw everest. Came down for some food and then went back up to watch the amazing sunset and have a couple very ice cold Everest beers. Then climbed it in the dark in the morning to see the sunrise. Couldn't get enough of the views
I took the bus from Kathmandu to Jiri then walked to Everest Base Camp. Arriving with good acclimatization meant I was able to beat other trekkers on the way up and had Kala Pataar all to myself for a decent amount of time. The weather was great in March: clear skies in the morning and cumulonimbus later on. Not crowded at all outside of the main corridor. I was most often alone on the passes and side trips. Same goes for AC & ABC in April.
Climbed with G.F. who is now my wife...
Climbed through a bad snowstorm got there fisst and made tea for all the other climbers...sadly it was cloudy and we only Got a peek at everest...
What a perfect view of Everest including the ability to see most of the normal Everest climbing route.
morning start at campsite near Lobuche, walked to Gorak Shep, lunch & set camp there, then to Kala Pataar.
Absolutely stunning views from the summit. A must when making a trekking in the Khumbu region.
Climbed with Johan G
Left around 6-7AM, and heard from the early risers that our late start was the better choice. Any earlier and Everest would have been a silhouette, and the air biterly cold. Sun came out 1/3 of the way up, and we were stripping layers quickly. After a faint spell due to climbing too quickly, we slowed down and the rest felt like a breeze. Scrambled to the tip of the summit block, per gimpilator's persistence. Incredible views, specifically of Pumori. A small bird sang to us from the top!
This little hill has amazing summit views. It might be the most impressive viewpoint I have ever seen. It took Natasha 9 days to reach from Lukla after a stomach illness delayed us for several days.
