Actor, model, athlete and all-round inspirational guy Milind Soman rung in his 52nd birthday on 4 November, 2017. But just before he did that, he made the grueling long trek from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. The famed Everest Base Camp trek typically takes you from Kathmandu to the base camp, which lies around 5,364 meters above sea level. And Milind Soman made the trek, flying to Kathmandu and starting from Lukla, helpfully documenting his journey. Here are some pictures of his incredible Everest Base Camp trek from a few weeks ago.

The whole trek, to and fro, usually takes around 14 days, taking you from the town of Lukla through the higher Himalayan mountains, following the route of the Khumbu Glacier all the way to the base. You go through small and large towns, ridges and trails. Over the years, the Everest Base Camp trek trail has become pretty organized, with food, shelter and guidance offered by locals almost throughout the way.

Still, the fact remains that this is one of the most grueling treks for non-professionals. And for Milind Soman to complete this trek (and look good while at it) is a testament to his willpower and should be an inspiration to anyone who believe that age is a bar to exploring and going on an adventure.
