Trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp was a dream come true for Dave and I. We've obsessed with everything Everest since reading Into Thin Air. We then read every book, and watched every documentary that we could on expeditions to the summit of the world's highest mountain. For a decade we talked about how “one day we'd like to see Everest.”
We never thought we'd have the opportunity to see it with our own eyes. But we did. And now we want to share our journey to Mount Everest base camp in photos.

But, when we first started ThePlanetD, we booked a flight to India in 2009. We didn't know where that path would take us, but we were in the right part of the world and who knows, maybe our journey would take us to Nepal? Well, four months into our trip, we sold our first ad on the travel blog and had some cash to fly to Nepal where we booked our own expedition to Mount Everest Base Camp. It was everything we ever dreamed it could be and here are some long lost photos that Dave recently found on his hard drive.
