Everest Base Camp – Expedición Española (Spanish expedition)

View of Everest Base Camp. 5340 meters. Nepal, Solo Kumbu Region. 2008. I share some moments with a Spanish-Chilenan expedition. I get invited to their main tent for a hot tea. They are trying to climb Lothse the fourth highest mountain 8516. In the tent I speak to the doctor of the expedition who is also the doctor from two other expeditions. One of the climbers who has recently descended from a higher camp 6400m explains that they are ready to attack the summit soon. Unfortunately they will not manage as one of the members had an accident over 7000m and the rest had to help him on the evacuation.
