Khumbu Glacier

Everest Base Camp Glacier Flows as mighty river of ice off the mountain.

At the top of the world, a river of ice flows down Mt Everest towards Base Camp and then as it melts, it changes form and continues across a continent before reaching the sea. In its path are countless lives that depend on this water to sustain them. Trekkers navigate a part of the Khumbu glacier on their way to experience the world from 5,364 m (17,598 ft) and most find the journey helps them to renew or uncover the purpose they would like to dedicate themselves to. From this altitude it is easy to feel connected to all of them through this river.
