Mount Evererst

Team of four. Bag full of gear we don’t understand. En route to the Everest with ACE The Himalaya. Just a¬†walk. Only this time is monumental.

One step, two steps, three steps…

One night at Namche Bazaar. Acclimatization.

Light-heads, chill nights, hot-chocolate cups.

One step, two steps, three steps…

Leaving civilization in search of glaciers and the tallest visible limb of Mother Earth.

Where?

Up. Up. Up!

One step, two steps, three steps…

We are on the moon. Getting every day closer to the goal.

One step, two steps, three steps…

Standing in front of the tallest mountain in the world.

Thin air. Very cold.

Not feeling our legs. It’s taken us long trekking days.

One step, two steps, three steps…

I came here feeling quite down but come back on a lifetime high.

Up. Up. Up!

Namaste Himalayas.

All good things come to an end so we have time to reflect.

Special thanks to three men: Pablo ‘Yaks’, Nando ‘Papuchi’ and Male ‘Man’.

Even bigger thanks to the sherpas from ACE The Himalaya that helped us figure out maps, routes and flights out of Lukla during monsoon season: Goku, Gobindae, Santos, Dipak and Ratz.

You are all real heroes.

One step, two steps, three steps…

Onwards.

Upwards.
