EVEREST BASE CAMP TREKKING

 

Everest Base Camp Trekking... Among the world's Journeys of Lifetime

Everest Base Camp Trekkking... TengbocheWith eight of the worlds ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountains vistas. Everest Trek in justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain (8,848m) but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals and monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery in the world from the Khumbu region. So, must be why it has been selected among world's 20 Journeys of Lifetime by The Observer, UK (11, January 2004).
 
Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags prayer wheels and intricately carved Mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler...

Everest Region People / Tradition / Cultures and Festivals

Sherpa religion (a mixture of Buddhist and animist) and culture have evolved from thousands of years of myths, stories and strong religious practice. Those of us attempting to understand this culture soon enter an endless maze of woven stories and tales. With the advent of tourism a considerable amount of the Khumbu economy now revolves around caring for trekkers and climbers. Though originally from Tibet, Tibetans and Sherpas are culturally very different from each other, depending on region of origin.
