    Hiking to Everest Base Camp: things nobody tells you!

    5 Things nobody tells you about hiking to Everest Base Camp, so I will! I just finished watching ‘Everest’ on board of our flight to Singapore and found myself with tears in my eyes, seeing all the beautiful places that we saw in real life when we were hiking to Everest Base Camp last November. It’s been just six months since we were there but at the same time, it seems so far away already, even years. As we are currently flying over India, I see Kathmandu appear on the screen every now and then. From here, it would be a short flight only to the beauty of the Himalayas.…

    The trail to Everest Base Camp – day 1

This shoe is, as the name indicates, ultra light and very suitable for a trek to Everest Base Camp, which happened to be coming up…   The thing with hiking shoes is, that they are generally large and lump.

    Wifi on Everest Base Camp trek: where to find it and the costs

    “Is there wifi on Everest Base Camp trek?” was the question I asked myself before heading over to Nepal. When googling this, the most recent post I found, was a blog from The Planet D that was published more than five years ago. As I imagine a lot would have changed over the past years, I contacted the agency we booked with, Rural Heritage, part of the bigger company called Himalayan Encounters. They told me there would be wifi in four places on the track which made me happy. I decided to go without internet as often as I could but I was happy I would still be able to…
