Day 12: Ama Dablam BC and Tengboche

There were about 20-30 tents at the BC. A guide for an Italian couple we encountered on the way up told us that there were about 20 climbers that week trying to summit Ama Dablam. We watched a group leaving base camp heading up to camp 1 that morning.

Day 11: Chukhung Ri

Our journey continues in the Himalayas. This is our hike on Day 11 up Chukhung Ri which has a gorgeous panoramic view including the north face of Ama Dablam.

Day 9 & 10: Chukhung

When we woke up on Day 9, our mindset had already shifted from strenuous climbing to leisure descending.

Day 8: Kala Patthar

Day 8 marks the highest point we reached in our trek: 18,514 feet or 5,644m. Say hi to Everest!

Day 7: Dzongla to Pyramid

After an exhausting day crossing Cho La, we, still in recuperation mode, found ourselves a wonderful little high mountain refuge called Pyramid.

Day 6: Cho La Pass

Our toughest day on this trek. It was a bit scary at times. I am thankful to have gone through it safely and get to blog about the experience.

day 5: Up the Ri

Going up Gokyo Ri once is obviously not satisfying enough once you turn on the beast mode…
