Yesterday, the day at Base Camp was a tough day for all of us. Lennart however was not feeling well after having completed the Base Camp trek when we came back to Gorakshep.

Today Lennart and started early to help Lennart to recover. Lennart took rest at Lobuche for half hour and felt well after that. Even Richard was not feeling well. He had no appetite. That’s a kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) symptoms.
The whole group met for Lunch at Thukla. As we are going down both Lennart and Richard were feeling well. It has been a big dream for Richard to reach the Everest Base Camp to see the Mt. Everest and Everest Base Camp in real. After reading about it in different books and magazines he was
impressed to visit once to the place once in a life time. Richard is CEO of Web Service Award. He has been spending lots of time in developing the company together with other leading team. That is why it has good reputation in Swedish Market.

It took us 3 days to reach to Base Camp from Dingboche and back to Pheriche (near to Dingboche) it only took one day.

Our camp for today was Pheriche. On the way down to Pheriche we saw lots of Yaks grazing. Especially, Pheriche is the grazing place for the yaks around the place of Pangboche, Dingboche and other places. And we knew that Yak Cheese is famous in Nepal.

At dinner time we had surprised cake made by our cook Rinji Sherpa. It was also last day camping dinner as well as farewell dinner from our camping staff.

Today we have trekked for 6 hours. We have had very good weather today.
