Over Christmas of 2017 I hiked to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar in Nepal with a two-person support group. It was an 11-day trek with 6 days of ascent, 3 days of descent, and two acclimatization days. We reached base camp (5300 m) and Kala Patthar (5600 m) on Christmas Day. It was very cold that day, around -20°C, and that evening strong winds picked up, so we were lucky. Do check out my photos of this remarkable trail.
