We post this video (see below) of Mount Everest base camp before the terrible earthquake and avalanche that killed 5 foreign climbers and 14 Sherpa guides and injured 120 others (Now known as the Gorkha earthquake) in honor of those Sherpas and climbers who lost their lives. Rest in peace.
Google Maps also has a tour which is beautiful, and in memory of Everest base camp and all those who lost their lives there – http://www.google.com/maps/about/behind-the-scenes/streetview/treks/the-worlds-highest-peaks/
Thomas Martienssen of the BBC gave this tour (below) before the avalanche: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-32366860. Except for in videos or travel guides, or the memories of climbers, Everest base camp (EBC) as we knew it no longer exists.
As the climbing season resumes on Mount Everest, the BBC’s Thomas Martienssen gives a tour of base camp – we’ll spare you the toilet tent.

Here is another video of the trip to get to base camp. Again, pre-April 24, 2015.
Another video of Everest base camp from 2013:
As of last week, Sherpas have refused to rebuild the route over the Khumbu Icefall, and most foreign climbers have left.
Just a month before the earthquake and avalanche, Nepal had been preparing for the climbing season by increasing the medical staff at base camp, and working to improve rescue facilities there.
