As you turn around to start the decent you are filled with a personal sense of achievement but bear in mind you have only completed half the journey. It is another 4-5 days of decent to Lukla from where you fly back to the comforts of Katmandu hotel and then it's party time!!
As amazing as it sounds this trek is no cake walk. At times it pushes you to the limit, both physically and mentally, and regardless of your physical fitness AMS can play spoil sport. Getting to Everest base camp is indeed an achievement, but enjoying the journey is equally important and the key is to train well.
In the end, you may not have set foot on Mt Everest but traversing the most scenic route on the planet and standing there, half way to the top of the world is an exhilarating experience that leaves you craving for more!
