Arriving at Everest Base Camp
It is the highest mountain in the world (8848 m). Its peak is a challenge. The truth is that hundreds of climbers choose to make this journey. It can take several weeks and cost approximately $75,000 (including permits, tickets, guides, food, camping equipment). In other words, you need money. Some people have died during the crossing. There are also other mountains to climb with a few meters of difference from Everest and that are much more dangerous for example the Annapurna. However, Everest has a special mysticism. When I went to the base camp on the Tibetan side of China, I could already see this mountain with such a characteristic cloud on its top which reminded me of several films. Many things happen as you scale, for example “loose vision” due to height. A young man from the United States became the youngest person to climb Everest at the age of 13 and a 16-year-old Nepali (sherpa) also succeeded in reaching the peak.
