Most funny moment on your way to Everest Base Camp:

When Jangbu Sherpa played a joke on me above 4,000 meters by placing the “pulse oximeter” (an instrument for measuring the body’s oxygen levels) on my nose, instead of where it was supposed be used – on my finger. It was a classic, high-altitude mountain guide joke and I feel for it, hook, line and sinker!
