Everest Base Camp 2. As high as you can go unless you are gonna climb her, and have the $’000’s needed to do so. Yeah, cos’ it’s the cash flow that’s stopping me! Nothing to do with my inferior lung capacity, pathetic VO2 Max ratio and fear of death.
It’s still nearly 80km from the mountain but at 5200m high enough for me.
Made sure I had a wee and made a phone call. It’s the highest I’ll ever do those things! Perfect reception from China Mobile, nice work.
A few pics from the top (of base camp 2 anyway!) follow, but for the avoidance of doubt – yes you can drive up this far. And yes I am wearing shorts to prove how hard I am.
