Travel photography of my trip to Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal in 2016

We started in the capital, Kathmanudu, then flew up to Lukla(one of the most dangerous airports in the world), and from there we trekked for two weeks(walking roughly 100 miles) through the Himalayas. We summited two mountains - Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar, and also visited Everest Base Camp. At our highest elevation, we reached 18,500 feet, and for much of the trip I had a chest cold, which made it even harder to breathe. These are a few of my favorite photos from that trip.
