From Phakding, we trek to Namche Bazaar and spending a day there. Namche Bazaar has a chilled out feel to it. Trekkers and mountaineers share their stories of adventure on the mountain, and share tips with those who have just begun. Then, we move to Tengboche, where we can visit the monastery and get some blessings before continuing. Climbing higher and further into the desolate alpine landscape (which is nothing less than stunning), we reach Everest Base Camp (5364 meters), with awesome views of the Khumbu Icefall.
From Base Camp, we make a few more ascents to acclimatize before the final ascent to the summit. Camp I is around 6,200 meters/20,340 feet. Camp II is around 6,600 meters/21,655 feet. Camp III is about 7,200 meters/23,620 feet. Camp IV (located at the South Col), from where we push to the summit, is at nearly 8,000 meters/26,250 feet.
