Through the narrow mountain trails of Nepal up in the Himalayas to the Everest Base Camp, a solo backpacking trip in deeply religious Georgia, a few days in sizzling hot Abu Dhabi, a short transit tour through the island country of Sri Lanka on my way to the land of Unity in Diversity, India. 2016 made me a free bird and opened my eyes into travel, people, places and experiences like never before.
We were out of gas when we reached Thame. Our feet was heavily blistered and bleeding, there was barely any energy left in us.
We went to sleep with the plan to summit Gokyo Ri the next day
Continuing my journey across the Khumbu region traversing the Three High passes. We docked in beautiful Gokyo, deep inside the Sagarmatha National Park.
Gokyo village, is nestled in between the Gokyo lakes and the mountains. This lakeside settlement boasts of one of the most serene views of the entire region.
The beautiful village of Dzongla gave us the feeling of the last village of the world before it drop on the other side.
This was arguably the best village on the trek and without doubt, hands down had the best views of the Khumbu Himalayas from a village. Dzongla was a small fairy-tale village.
The trip to EBC was a stuff of dreams. It took time for the mind to come in terms with the beauty of the mountain. They say, “Everest beckons you” and so it did.
