After spending some days at WC Kathmandu, I was going to EBC – Everest Base Camp. EBC is really like “been there done that” without much to see. But the whole journey to it was a unique experience.
I could see the landscape changing from green (a lot of trees), to grey (small trees), to white (mix of ice and stone).
I could feel the less-oxygen air and overcome it.
I could know that the 5-star price and non-star service can go together.
I could have 24 hours without any internet at all (no way to get it).
I could fail when something was too hard for me.
I could face many types of things in almost the same time: cold, sunny, dusty, windy, and snowy.
I could (a lot of verbs here).
I am definitely not the best in this world, but I am better than myself of yesterday. I came to EBC with my guide but a lot of others are really “hard-core.” They go there without any guide person, just the map, and their braveness.
Each day on the trip was interesting for me; each day was a challenge with the different things on the way.
I did well for the whole trip except the last day. From the highest rest point, I could not go to Kala Patthar, from which I would have the best view of Everest. I could not breathe due to the less oxygen in the air. And I felt very tired coming from this point to EBC. At least, I could make it to EBC.
Even so, the trip was boring in the evening. It was cold outside in the evening and nothing to do. People usually slept at 8 pm. Therefore, I could have more time to think about what’s next for me and read more books. It was not bad at the end.
I am thinking about the next challenge. Before that, let’s take a look at some interesting videos during my trek. 🙂
