Pictures of our trekking in Sagarmatha National Park

All of our trekking is described in detail in the diary section. We walked between 2 and 6 hours every day. The hardest day was from Lobuche to the base camp and back to Gorak Shep. This took us about 9 hours and almost killed us. We still blame it on the altitude and that we hadn't really acclimatized. All other days have been rather light trekking, no big difficulties, it just goes up and down a lot.
