Air Maestro’s Senior Customer Support Analyst, Prageeth, recently braved high-altitudes and physical and mental exhaustion to climb the South Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
At an altitude of 5,364 meters, the South Everest Base Camp is a small tented village that serves as a staging ground for climbers attempting to summit Mount Everest.
Travelling from Australia, Prageeth began his journey in Kathmandu, where he spent a few days acclimatising to the altitude and preparing for the climb ahead. From there, he then flew to Lukla, where the real adventure began. The climbing trail wound through lush green forests, across streaming rivers and up steep hillsides. As Prageeth ascended higher, he found the air became thinner and the scenery more spectacular.
