Everest Base Camp travel blog

We are gaining altitude and it is important that we

move at a slow, steady pace. The slopes are

quite barren now as we have moved above the

tree line. Views of different peaks, such as

Cholatse and Lobuche, unfold before us in this

contrasting and spectacular landscape. We move

up the Dhugla Ridge and onto moraine towards

Khumbu Glacier. Rock cairns can be seen, many

of which are dedicated to the memory of climbers

attempting the high mountains of the area,

including Everest. The temperatures drop here as

we are more exposed with our camp situated

amongst this glacial moraine. We enjoy

spectacular views all day today of Pumori and

Nuptse. The hill above the town affords fine

sunset views of Nuptse
