This is my tribute to these bunch of friendly fellows who always put up a smile on their face no matter. Their humble yet resilient character has been a rock for the success of climbers in the Himalayas for decades.
Looking back at my journey to the Everest region in Nepal.
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.
