Base Camp Is Huge
When we finally reached base camp at 17,600 feet, we were all excited, emotional, relieved, and tired. But we were in for a huge shock when our Sherpas told us that we still had one more hour to go until we reached our camp for the night.
Base camp is massive. It's basically like a village with hundreds of tents and numerous companies set up for the months ahead. If you're staying overnight there like we did, you might need to really hike to get to your spot.
