We arrive in plenty of time to visit Everest Base Camp at an altitude of just over 17,000 feet. (5,200 metres) We have to dismount, leave our jeep securely parked and travel the remaining few kilometres to Visitor’s Base Camp by Electric bus transport. This is due to environmental issues and for the preservation of this sensitive area. The world’s highest mountain now looms majestically in front of you. We spend this afternoon and evening taking photographs and watching the sun go down over her peak. I can assure you that these moments will stay etched in your memory forever. The next time you’re at this altitude, you’ll be on your flight home..
