Apr 25, 2020 - GorakShep to Kala Patthar and then Pheriche

April 25, 2011 Day 16 GorakShep to Kala Patthar and then Pheriche 5556m to Kala Patthar - 4.5 hours Pheriche - 4240m Most of the people of the Yeti Resort got up at 4am so we were half awake long before our 5am alarm. At 5:20am Charlene and I had tea and then we left at 5:39am for Kala Patthar. It was about -10C or colder with the wind and lots of snow.

May 10, 2013 - Day 12 Lobuche to GorakShep

GorakShep 5180m 2.5 hours I had my best sleep from 5 – 7am and woke up with a start thinking I was late. We are meeting at 7:30 this morning, so I am good – whew!

Sep 18, 2012 - The Come Down

Wake-up call 4am! It was pitch black and woke with a stinking headache.
