Earthquake & Massive Avalanche

My first attempt at climbing Everest was on 25th April 2015 in which I had to face the massive avalanche at Everest due to the earthquake in Nepal. My climb was a failure for the first time. When the Earthquake struck I was at Camp II of the Everest region. I, along with seven other members of the expedition team, was in the dining tent. The tent started moving as if it was floating on water. We ran out of the tent and the next thing I remember was being pulled out of the snow by my Sherpa friends. Unfortunately, four members of my team could not be rescued and passed away.

Luckily, I had survived and after two days was airlifted by the helicopter which brought the remaining of my team and my Sherpa brother safely back to Camp I. Upon arriving at Base Camp, I saw many deaths and massive destruction caused by the earthquake. This sight really disheartened me and I thought that was the end of my dream of climbing Everest.

The very next day, I came back by a helicopter to Lukla which is named the most dangerous airport in the world. There were no flights available from Lukla to take me back home to Phuplu for two weeks so I trekked back to Phaplu. This took me three days on foot.
