3rd of November 2018 – The day I ticked off Everest Base Camp on my never ending and constantly growing bucketlist. I would remember this day in the years to come. Or… at least until the next BIG adventure fills my ever wandering mind. The trip summed up to a total of 17 days and I wasn’t entirely out of connectivity. Thank god for N Cell and Everest Link, both proven to be crucial during emergencies and giving my loved ones a peace of mind.
“When you go to the mountains, you see them and you admire them. In a sense, they give you a challenge, and you try to express that challenge by climbing them.” – Sir Edmund Hillary, First Man to summit Mount Everest.
The expedition was overall very successful and it certainly exceeded my personal expectations. Now, everyone’s burning question was “How much did you spend for the entire 17 days expedition?” ! This was of course, after the initial ‘How was your trip?’, ‘How do you feel?’ etc.. Let me break it down for you! If you ever consider hiking Everest Base camp, at least you know how to plan your finances and how much you need to save and set aside.
