Adventure Time: Everest Base Camp

For over a decade, the highest item on my bucket list has surely been Everest Base Camp. Trekking to the roof of the world, moving from guest-house to guest-house, passing temples and stupas, battling with the altitude— all these dreams became a reality during a winter trip to Nepal. Since before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first successful summit in 1952, Mount Everest has called to climbers and mountaineers. John Krakauer's book "Into Thin Air" and the 2015 film "Everest," which outlines the 1996 disaster, have contributed to the infamy surrounding the deadly mountain. However, trekking to base camp has become a bucket-list item for many other trekkers as well, all who wish to gain some high-altitude experience, visit the culturally-rich Khumbu region of the Himalaya, and see the world's tallest peak with their own eyes.
