      Everest Base Camp Trek -5 days and yoga

      Though this trek was just about climbing, but it turned into a yoga session with yaks (they're surprisingly flexible) and a dip in a hidden hot spring under the stars. Base Camp became a spa in the clouds, thanks to my awesome guide, Shiva and his team..
