Everest Base Camp Trail

Just off the flight to Lukla, we meet up with our Sherpa, Ang Kami, and our porter, Raj Kuhmar, and start our hike.  No rest, just on to the Khumbu trek up the Everest Base Camp Trail.  Its an easy trek at first which gives you plenty of time to soak it all in and comprehend the fact that you are hiking in the footsteps of George Mallory, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Tenzing Norgay.  However, we decided to skip EBC itself since it was not the time of year when all of the climbers set up the tent city in their bid to tackle the mountain, but we would veer off the trail after a few days and head up the Gokyo route for its better views of Everest and Lhotse than EBC itself.
