This is the photo of the last place we reached before we turned around from our trek to Everest Base Camp in 2013. A small “restaurant” on what you would call the outskirts of town. We had a coffee and made a joint decision to turn back. It seemed the right thing to do considering the rash creeping up both my legs.

Ever since reaching Everest Base Camp has felt like unfinished business. We had done a couple of the really hard days and we only had another 23.7 kilometres to get to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar. Certainly it was such a fantastic experience we wanted to do it again.
