This morning we left Lobuche at 08.00 not yet aware that we would be walking for 11 hours today. A record for all of us! As usual a very nice sunny morning and we were all in a good mood which got even better when Diki introduced us to the friendly Nepali movie star Arjun Karki . He was carrying a Nepali flag to bring to the summit of Everest.
This trek is a dream for photographers and it is hard not to get good pictures with all the beautiful scenery. After 3 hours we came to our lodge in Gorakshep and stopped for lunch before heading to Base Camp. We walked and walked and walked and along the way we met many trekkers, yaks and porters coming from Base Camp. We are all happy to successfully having reached our goal - the Everest Base Camp at 5445m. We are so fortunate to be part of the Peak Promotion team which allowed us to enter the camp and meet the Peak Promotion expedition. After a brief visit when we were served a cold during and soup we commenced the long journey back to our lodge. We made it just in time before sunset.
