This was my most challenging hiking trip, which was completed with the most challenging day. We started at 5:30 am when it was freezing cold, everything was aching and I felt lightheaded. I ignored all my pains and pushed through. Telling myself over and over again that I can do it, believing in my strength and determination. And we did it; we reached base camp Everest.
The bigger the challenge the bigger the satisfaction of overcoming it.
During our 8 day hiking trip we walked 80 km (50 miles) with a total elevation gain of 4,500 m (15,000 ft). Half of these days we spend in altitude above 4,000 m (13,000 ft), which has just 50% of the oxygen compared to sealvel. We reached the highest point at 5,400 m (18,000 ft).
