Everest Base Camp

EBC 2 EBCThese photos were taken today at Everest Base Camp (EBC) on Karma Sherpa and his client’s trip to the summit of Everest.

Climbers typically stop off and rest at EBC for several days in order to acclimatise to the weather and altitude to reduce the risks of altitude sickness. Supplies are brought to the North and South base camps by Sherpas often with the help of animals as there is limited to no road access, especially during the winter months.
