I’ve always dreamed of Everest ever since I was a kid. It was a dream that has always been a dream (to read: a far reality). And as I understand the way of things, I realized that it is impossible for me to summit the top of the world and I came to accept the closest thing – the Everest Base Camp!
After four consecutive years of venturing into Nepal, twice of which were treks to Annapurna Base Camp, I promised myself that my fifth would be to Everest Base Camp. I needed to do it, while I’m still in my prime and my resources could still handle it.
So, I returned to the Himalayas on the last week of November 2016 with my buddy who were also with me on my second trek to Annapurna Base Camp.

Day 1: Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu (1,400m)
