Trek to Everest Base Camp


Tuesday, April 29 – ACCLIMITAZATION HIKE; IN DINGBOCHE (14,470 ft.)

Tour schedule: The day is spent hiking in the high country surrounded by Ama Dalam and all of its satellite peaks. The trek leader will determine how far and which view points that the group will visit. This will be based on the strength and acclimatization of the group.

And the day unfolds:


sunrise on Mt. Amadablam (a different view as we have now hiked around the peak)


Brad, going over the Expedition Medical Kit
