Going to Everest was one of the high points about traveling to Tibet. Besides being the worlds highest mountain it also is part of a chain of mountains known as the Himalayas... maybe you've heard of them?
Sadly, it wasn't all fun and games. I got a head cold the day before Everest and that combined with the altitude pressure and general cold caused me to get incredibly sick. I've never felt so poor in my life. I thought my head would explode and death seemed near. Not to ruin any endings, but I did make it through. Though the night slept at the base camp monastery was one of the worst sleeping nights of my life.
