Everest summit!!!! 2

Road to Gokyo

After an acclimatisation day at Namche Bazar I set off to Kumjung first. A detour, but I can leave some stuff behind that I won’t need during my trekking here. I meet the Belgian Everest Team (North side) with their trekking group and I join them for an hour or […]
