  • The glacier is just constantly moving and is like walking on the moon. Everything is grey! It looks dormant but the noise of shifting shale and moving ice will let you know that under all that stone.....  more

  • The rocky path lead to the signature stone of EBC
  • The entire Glacier is ever shifting, is dangerous and has unstable surface due to the loose gravel, pebbles, stones and collapsing glacial ice. Section /intersection of Kangri Shar Glacier and Khumbu Glacier is most risky to negotiate. One has to be sure of their footing other wise the chances of accidents and injury are very high. The Everest Base Camp is set up adjoining the Khumbu ice fall & Khumbu Glacier.
  • The Khumbu Glacier is located in the  region of northeastern Nepal between MOUNT EVEREST and the Lotse-Nuptse ridge. With elevations of 16,100 ft.it is the world's highest glacier.The Khumbu Glacier is start near mount Everest.The glacier has a large icefall it's name the khumbu icefall, This icefall is the the most dangerous.
  • The mountains are larger than in the pics and so far away. Can't climb without permits and stuff. Had to walk 12 days just to reach the bar camp. Poor public transport and bad roads. Does not suggest. Also in the night temperatures go below 0 degrees without any warning. Have asked TripAdvisor for a refund.
