Trekking in the high Himalayas to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. This was the last rest stop before we reached Gorak Shep. The tall mountain in view here is Pumo Ri (7,161 m; 23,494 ft). The smaller (black) peak in front of Pumo Ri is Kala Patthar (5,643m; 18,513 ft), which we also climbed. We hiked the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to reach EBC; the view was dominated by the high peaks surrounding Everest, glaciers, more glaciers, snow and rock. It was cold! It was incredibly beautiful!
