withacandk #tbt Is 15 months long enough for a #throwbackthursday or is this a #latergram ? Regardless, this trip to #Nepal ties with my previous trip to the Annapurna region, as my favourite trips in the last 15+ years. The #trek, with @ExploreWorldwide, was to #EverestBasecamp in the #Himalayas But this photo was taken at #sunrise from #Kalapattar because you can't see #Everest (the black tip) from #Basecamp , but you can see #Nupste and #Lhotsi from both

shinyhappykaren Our first day of descent (Pheriche camp to Namche) after Shaun reached the Everest Base Camp. I was still undergoing symptoms of altitude sickness at this point, but nothing can take away the incredible and breathtaking awesomeness of the Himalayas. Amidst the challenges and downs of the trip, we'd still go back in a heartbeat. It is truly a wonderful life-changing journey #nepal #nepalhikingteam #everestbasecamptrek #everestbasecamp #pheriche #travel #asia #himalayas 2d

shaunhutch85 Yesterday morning I fulfilled a life-long dream of visiting Mt. Everest base camp - trekking the Himalayas has been a very challenging, yet amazing experience. The sherpa people, fellow trekkers and incredible scenery have made this an unforgettable adventure. My heart goes out to the sherpas who were killed/injured in Friday's avalanche. I've never seen a tougher, more hard-working group of people. 3mon

angie_baby72 It's raining again outside so no chance of taking photos today :( . Here's another shot from my trek in the Himalayas. On this day we had walked from Lobuche (4910m) to Gorak Shep (5160m) for lunch and on to Everest Base Camp. Gorak Shep sits at the bottom of Kala Patthar (5545m) - the brown hill in front of the majestic moutain of Pumori (7161m). On the right of the shot you can see the Khumbu Glacier and the area known as Everest Base Camp. :) 2d

  •   patsycc Wow amazing trek good on you must have been awful feeling unwell up there 2d
  •   angie_baby72 Thanks @patsycc. It was hard at times because I was so dizzy and sometimes it was like the ground was coming up to me with each each step. Well worth the discomfort though! I had always wanted to go to the Himalayas. Definitely THE one place I would have regretted not getting to. :) 2d
  •   patsycc Very impressive great achievement 2d
  •   iamycel wow!im jealous! 2d
  •   angie_baby72 Ha ha @iamycel...didn't mean to make you feel that way. You should go though if it interests you. It's so beautiful :) 2d
  •   iamycel someday will tick this in my bucket list @angie_baby72 2d

shinyhappykaren Finally landed in Lukla - the most "dangerous" airport in the world! The runway is only about 60 meters long and there's a 10 foot drop to land. So surreal to see the Himalayan greats from the plane. The plane ride in itself is already an amazing and exciting experience! 4mon

shinyhappykaren Day 2 of the trek, based on what those who have done it say, is one of the toughest days of the climb. If you don't cough up blood or die after day 2, then you're fit to reach the base camp. We left Phakding for Namche Bazar in the morning and did a 6 hour trek. We went through suspension bridges (the highest ones we've crossed in our lives) and extremely steep climbs while it rained, hailed and snowed! We went through an 800 plus meters climb to reach Namche which is situated at 3,500 meters above sea level. It was such an amazing experience! Fortunately, we are both acclimatizing well. Our sherpa and guide (Khumba and Deepak) are the best! 6 days of trek left til the EBC! 4mon

shinyhappykaren Day 3 is acclimatization day. Ironically, I had my first sign of altitude sickness after the trek today - pulsating headaches. But after a good round of hot chocolate, tea, a hot shower, and advil, I'm good as new! From Namche, we went up to the Hotel Everest View - it was a steep climb of 400 meters. But the view was incredible! We also visited the Sagarmartha Park and Museum (a separate climb altogether). Today made me realize even more how amazing the Sherpa community is - the things we take for granted are very valuable to them. They are such a strong, positive and resilient people. So honored to be here with them. 4mon

shinyhappykaren Days 7 and 8: Traveled from Dingboche, Thukla and Lobuche. It is EXTREMELY cold and windy. At 4750, altitude mountain sickness got to me - my right side of the brain is pushing my eyes out and pulsating so bad. So heartbroken cause im 600 meters away from base camp. Ive lost my appetite and look different. I just went down to 4200 now for a medical aid. Still ok but in pain. Shane has headaches too but we both made a pact that if one gets sick, the other pushes through. Waiting for him to go reach base camp til tomorrow then we might get choppered out to Kathmandu for medical reasons. Still so happy with what we've seen and experienced. It's indeed a once in a lifetime trip. 4mon
