Glaciers line the sides of Camp 1, the rocky route between the Qomolangma Base Camp and the Advanced Base Camp. Aside from several inclined segments, the route is relatively flat. In the spring and summer, one can encounter small glaciers melting just before the route reaches an altitude of 5,800 meters. Beyond 5,800 meters, one can see the beautiful serac forest.
