Day 11: After a 2 and a half hour walk we made it to our ultimate point of the whole trek, Everest base camp 😁🏔️ Something that was on my bucket list of things to do and now it has been done ✔️ This isn't about me, this is about my amazing wife and the team of people I got to share this journey with. I couldn't have done it without any of them, @leesy_lees always enthusiastic and always made sure the team was doing everything together. @nathan.smyth89 great guy to sit and chat with about anything on the way to or in the teahouses, he also should us that a little bit of food poisoning will not stop the show 😉 @hiraabhotte what's to be said, he literally took us all up a mountain with a smile and plenty of jokes!! Last but not least my favourite person @withshannon my wife 😘 I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else. You made this an enjoyable trek, as fun a time as possible, exciting to see all the new views and you would motivate me to continue and make sure we finished. I have to say that even though I got to spend this time with each of you I'm glad it's done!! . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #wedoneit #everest #everestbasecamptrek

Day 10: We walked to Lobuche to stay the night before we head to Everest Base Camp tomorrow 😁 Also, on a side note all 3 parts of mine and Shannon's adventure are on YouTube 🎥 you should check it out (link is in the bio) 👍 . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #lobuche #nearlythere

UNDER THE BODHI TREE 💚 This beautiful tree is considered to have religious significance in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. The Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment under a Bodhi tree. This species of tree apparently has a very long lifespan, with an average life ranging between 900–1,500 years, some have been reportedly found living for over 3,000 years. There were beautiful specimens all along the early parts of our trek. The tree is also used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of disorders. #bodhitree #pipaltree #peepaltree #scaredtree #sacredfig #ficusreligiosa #buddhism #himalaya #mountains #annapurnacircuit #annapurnaregion #annapurna #nepal #nepal🇳🇵 #kandooadventures #travel #travelling #hiking #hikingadventures #trekking

Day 9: As far as hard days go this was the hardest we would do. We climbed to the highest point we would reach at 5368m at the top of the Cho La pass. This is a rock face that you snake in amongst and climb in the sun 🥵 on one side and wear micro spikes for the ice on the other 🏔️🥶 By far my favourite day as this wasn't just nice views this was a challenge and it certainly made me work for it. We eventually got to our teahouse and I felt like a soldier just coming off the battle field 🤣 Would I do this again? I would have a long hard think...but eventually I'd go back to the Himalayas in a heartbeat 😏 Peak climb next? . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #cholapass #hardday

Day 8: This is the day I had been waiting for since booking our trek; the walk up Gokyo Ri 😁 We got up at 04:00 to start our ascent and climb to a height of 5357m. It took us 5 hours overall to get up, down and mess around at the top. All the hard days were worth it for these views. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #gokyo #gokyori #sunrise #sunrise_and_sunsets

Day 7: We trekked to Gokyo and this was possibly my favourite part of the whole trek. The views were stunning. You can see the town of Gokyo 4750m and in the back Cho Oyu 8201m. Not only is this the 6th highest mountain in the world but it is also on the border of Nepal and Tibet. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #gokyo #chooyu

Day 6: Today was an acclimatisation day and we hiked up 400m and walked for 3-4 hours. This was one of my favourite days because the views were amazing😏 we also went to an altitude talk at the IPPG which stands for International Porter's Protection Group. They're cause is to help sherpas, porters and of course anyone else in the area that may need medical help or advice. I found their approach very honest when they said that they charge foreigners $50 US for a consultation where as it's 20 NRPS (£0.14). The pricing seems a bit high, but as foreigners we can afford these prices. Also, no one would get far without these guys. I am happy to have bought my t-shirt from them 😁👍 . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #machermo #ippgroup

Day 5: We walked a short but still tiring day to Machermo. We gained 400m and walked for 4-5 hours. This is a picture of our guide Hira just chilling on a boulder as we got a drink and had a muck about with our stuff. If it wasn't for the guidance (quite literally), the help and the laughs from this man I don't think any of us would have done it. A big thank you to him and his team for the expertise around this area. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #machermo

Day 4: We walked to our next stay which was up at Dole. A 700m gain in elevation which took us 7 - 8 hours walking from Namche Bazar. On the way as you can see the views were magnificent as you can see Ama Dablam to the right and just poking out over centre left you can see Mount Everest. For the energy I lost from walking I gained back with the outer worldly views. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #dole

Day 2: We walked from Phakding to Namche Bazaar. It took us 7- 8 hours and 3 wire bridges. We climbed 700m from Phakding and were treated to a stay at the Hill-Ten 😏 we had the corner "suite" with our very own bathroom 😁👍 what else could you ask for. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures #namchebazar

Day 1: We landed in Lukla and delighted that we survived the flight 😉🛬 the flight itself took only 40 minutes and had amazing views of the Himalayas on the left side of the plane... which I happened to be sitting on 😁👍 We were full of excitement and couldn't wait to get higher to see the views of the mountains. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures

When trekking around and about the Himalayas you forget about normal things like social media, internet, easily accessible information and of course constant washing 🤣🤢 That's the reason I am going to be doing a run down each day as it comes for the next 14 days of what happened and how we coped.

Yesterday we finished our E.B.C. trek via the Gokyo Lakes. We are knackered but overwhelmed with joy that it's finished and that we actually achieved one of many peoples bucket list... Including ours. Currently we are sitting in Lukla airport waiting for our flight to Kathmandu. I can't wait to get washed and shaved after 2 weeks 😅 . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures

FOODIE ALERT!!! (I’ve woken up super early and super hungry!) One of the things I’ve been mostly amazed by is the deliciously yummy food we’ve had along the way 😋 in order here 1. Dal BHAT (a staple on the mountain eaten by guides and Sherpas for most meals and eaten on a ‘as much as you can eat’ basis - the saying goes ‘Dal BHAT power, 24 hour’) 2. Apple pie 3. Veggie momos (little steamed Cornish pasties) 4. Ginger lemon honey drink - another staple 5. Veggie noodle stir fry 6. Honey porridge 7. Yak Mac n’ cheese 8. Garlic soup ( a fave for beating altitude sickness) 9. Aglio Olio (a bit of a surprise find in Gokyo) 10. Veggie burger and home made chips #nomnom Put it this way, we haven’t gone hungry!! Today is a super hard day as we take on the Chola Pass - 10-12 hours of hiking across boulders and a glacier - all of it ‘Nepali flat’ aka ‘super steep’ 😳😳😳 . . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

Woweeee - that was super tough 😅 up at 4am to hike Gokyo Ri (Gokyo Peak). We set off with head torches having each slept about 4 hours with the altitude/excitement/fear. 3 hours of climbing in -5 temperatures and the sun started to show. Views of Everest from the top when we reached 5380m - it was pretty emotional and really felt like being on top of the world 🏔🏔🏔 . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

We climbed 400m today and hiked 8km to make it to #Gokyo where we will spend the night at 4800m. Absolutely stunning scenery as we continue to be super lucky with the weather ☀️ Gokyo is at a crossroads up here so a bit more going on, including aglio olio for lunch #nomnom😋 had a nap and opened the curtains to see the last pic out of the window 😬🐄 #anotherdayanotheryak.

An acclimatisation hike this morning up to 4800m 😳 - hiking is getting harder with the altitude but the views are incredible. Was let in on a little secret of local garlic soup 🥣 a natural remedy for altitude sickness (and something that will definitely keep any Nepali vampires at bay 🧛‍♂️). This afternoon was a much needed rest avo for which I was mainly horizontal and getting rested and ready for a couple of big hikes coming up. Opened the curtains post nap to the view on the last pic which was awesome 🐄😬 THANK YOU so much to those who have sponsored me - it’s a constant reminder as I plod one foot in front of the other and is really much appreciated ❤️ Next stop Gokyo tomorrow 🏔🐄🏃‍♀️ . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

Day 6: Today we did our acclimatisation day in Machermo. We climbed to 4800m in preparation for us going to Gokyo tomorrow 😁 Once we reach Gokyo we will climb Gokyo Ri which is 5357m. The views are supposed to be some of the best you can get in the Sagarmatha region. However I haven't been disappointed yet. . . . #travellingthroughtheworld #stayandwander #createexplore #beautifuldestinations #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #wonderfulplaces #somewheremagazine #folkscenery #unicatrails #marvelsofnepal #trekkersofnepal #planetearth #beyondthelands #everestbasecamp #smellofthemountain #mytiso #visitnepal2020 #kandooadventures

We made it to manchermo after 450m of climbing. A bit tired today as we hit 4400m high so the acclimatisation time this afternoon is perfect. A ‘small hill’ to climb in the morning so we climb high and sleep low again which should help with altitude sickness. Now time to tuck into some yummy Himalayan Mac n’ cheese then a nap 😴🍝🏔 . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

Really tough day today as we ascended over 1000m and made it to Dhole just as the clouds were rolling up the valley. Amazing to see Andy, a buddy from @racingtheplanet en route - a real small world moment. O2 levels have dropped for the team but everyone is feeling ok albeit a little tired. Shorter day tomorrow up to 4410m and then an acclimatisation day again the day after 🏔🏃‍♀️🥶 . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

Packing everything up ready for the next stage of our ‘EBC’ (Everest Base Camp - love a new acronym😬) ascent. We are climbing 700m today which will take us to just over 4100m in altitude. Because we all ‘climbed high and slept low’ our O2 levels increased and heart rates decreased on day three - so the acclimatisation day worked a treat. Some interesting stuff about what’s to come 🏔as we head to +4000m today Hira shared its the day more people feel the effects of altitude. Add to that moving forwards it’s outside loos only (less of an issue in the day but more so at night as the temperatures drop to the low minuses). Also no hot showers now for another 5 days 😳. So here’s when things start to get a bit more tricky for Shannon, Robbie, Nathan and me.

Every night we have a health check with our guide which consists of a blood oxygen level test to measure the amount of oxygen in our blood and a heart rate test to see how hard our bodies are working at altitude. We are then asked 5 questions 1. Do you have a headache 2. Have you felt dizzy 3. Are you eating ok 4. Are you drinking ok 5. How did you sleep last night. Each question has a rating and the scores added up to assess whether we are ready for the next day. Then follows a route briefing for the next day. Tomorrow we leave Namche on an 11km hike up another 600m 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ . . . . . . . #everestbasecamp #kandooadventures #everestbasecamptrek #nepal #neverstopexploring #adventure #everest #everest2019 #treknepal #sagarmathanationalpark #ebc #ukhikers #anythingispossible #dreambig #ebc2019 #shewentwild

# CLASSIC INCA TRAIL. July 2019 One of our awesome trekking trip. # LLACTAPATA INCA SITE # I couldnt help remembering how Edi, our guide surprises us when he wanted to show us "Llactapata" - one of the largest Inca site along the Inca trail trekking.😁 # We did not have a clue what he was doing. 1st he collected our trekking poles. Then he held our hands and asked us to close our eyes and walked with him. Luckily Iskandar kept the video recording so I could re-play and see what was happening. 😉 # When we were close to the edge Edi asked us to open our eyes....and then we saw the large Inca site down below. It was unbelievable.😳 # The element of suspence and surprised made it even better. 😁 # #classicincatrailtrek #incatrail #awesomeguides #awesomeplaces #kandooadventures #beentheredonethat #beenthereseenthat #doctorswhotrek #outdooractivities #trekking #wanderlust #hikinghearts #bucketlistdone #llactapata #incasite #suspense #beautifuldestinations #stayandwander #travellers

Kandoo Adventures and our guide Elio provided our group of 6 people with everything we needed as far as train/bus tickets, 7 including Elio. Once at the train station, we boarded for another 1hr+ train ride to KM 104 where our hike begins. KM104 is the last 1/3 portion of the Inca trail. Total miles was about 6.5 at elevations reaching 9,022ft. Time wise, it took us 7 hours including re-groups and stop along the Inca Trail to view Inca Ruins. #kandooadventures @worldnomads #worldnomads
