Everest Base Camp Trek & Kala Pattar

We have been home for 6 weeks now and time we thanked you for our wonderful trip to Nepal. We had a fabulous time on our trek to Everest Base Camp thanks largely to our exceptional Trekking Guide Kapil & his team, Moden, Bilbodur & Bolbodur. They made our trek exceptional.

In reviewing those highlights most people would expect us to wax poetically about the beautiful wooded countryside on the way to Namche. Also who could forget the scary crossings of those wonderfully engineered suspension bridges replete with their colorful prayer flags billowing in the breeze while far below the rapidly flowing bluish-tinged glacier water (of the Dudh Khosi and Imja Khola rivers), twisted its way from up high, framed by steep cliffs on either side. Others would expect us to dwell on the Yaks, those magnificent creatures, unknown to most Westerners, that can only survive in the rarified atmosphere in and above Namche and that are so important to the local economy.
