Island Peak 6189m and Everest base camp, May 2012
A three week trek with a fantastic finish

Back in Nepal again with the Smith & Co. The plan was to do a trek to Namche Bazar, Gokyo over the Cho La pass 5300m and down to Everest Basecamp. We managed this in good style and we arrived in Everest BC when it still was quite calm. Most of the expeditions where down at lower altitude to get some good sleep and to breath thick and moist air. We did a climb up the Khumbu Ice fall and it is still a very scary place.

Our main goal was to climb the Island Peak 6189 meter. We had fantastic weather and we where first on the very small summit pyramid. What a great view and feeling to be standing on a Himalayan peak.
