I took a video from the inside of the plane taking off from Lukla
Our last two days saw us hiking almost 18 miles and losing 4000 feet in elevation. We are back to normal people altitude and civilization again.
When we woke up on Day 9, our mindset had already shifted from strenuous climbing to leisure descending.
Day 8 marks the highest point we reached in our trek: 18,514 feet or 5,644m. Say hi to Everest!
After an exhausting day crossing Cho La, we, still in recuperation mode, found ourselves a wonderful little high mountain refuge called Pyramid.
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.
Going up Gokyo Ri once is obviously not satisfying enough once you turn on the beast mode...
The two days following our resting day in Namche Bazaar, we climbed almost 15 miles and gained over 7,000 ft in elevation. In Day 4, we pushed ourselves further going from Dole to Gokyo in one day.
It was a struggle for Tricia on Day 3 as her stomach had strong disagreement with her mind...
