Getting ready for the higher camps

We have spent now seven days at Everest Base Camp, at 5,200m/17,160ft, mostly getting used to the high altitude. It is not always easy to adapt to this kind of altitude so several rest days as well as acclimatization hikes up to 6,000m/19,800ft are necessary before the body is ready to move up higher. Headaches, colds, coughs and other aches are often part of this process. And this is still at relatively low altitude…

The packing and repacking has now been finished and as you can see on the pictures the Yaks have already been loaded for the long trip. Every tent, all heavy material, all the food and some of the personal equipment is moved up from Base Camp (BC) to Advanced Base Camp (ABC).
