After a small delay of 24 hours at the border we headed into China and Tibet, we spent three days jumping up and down the side of the Himalayas as we adjusted to altitude and made sure everybody was ready to enjoy there time at base camp. Got to be here to experience it properly, bu after India this is what overlanding is all about. We went as high as 5360m and spent almost 2 weeks above 4000m, was fantastic, but an extreme experience. Pictures of Everest, base camp, tents we stayed in at base camp, serving pumpkin soup at the top of the highest pass we have crossed top date and generally having a blast.
