After one night in Phortse, we head out again and make our way to Pheriche where we will be spending two nights, giving us one full day here and a chance to walk up the nearby hill to continue our acclimatisation by spending some time at a higher altitude and then back to the lodge for lunch.
From Pheriche we have a long day ahead of us as we trek up to Lobuche, passing the memorial ground of many of the climbers lost to the mountain over the years. We will spend another two nights at Lobuche to allow our bodies to adapt and rest, offering another chance to do some walking in the hills around us.
After our stop here it’s Base Camp Day! Another fairly long day we will be walking through the valley for a quick stop in the last village on the route, Gorak Shep, before we take on the last 2 or 3 hours into Everest Base Camp and a well-deserved lunch. Once we are here, we have 4 days to see some of the rest of the camp, take a trip up the nearby Kalapattar for a fantastic view of Everest, and generally enjoy a bit of expedition life.
