Everest Base Camp Trail, Khumjung 56000, Nepal
The trek to Everest Base Camp is quite possibly the most dramatic and picturesque in the Himalayas. We stayed in villages set against soaring, jagged pinnacles; we got to know the unique culture of the Sherpas; discovered remote mountain monasteries; walked trails lined with mani stones, engraved with Tibetan Buddhist prayers and learnt about the Sherpas’ spiritual perspective on the mountains they call home.

About Khumjung

Find your way to the Yeti Scalp of KhumjungIn 1960, when Desmond Doig, a British journalist, and Edmund Hillary were passing through the Khumjung Village, they stopped over at the home of an old woman and found, what was speculated to be, a Yeti scalp. Yeti is an ape-like creature who is said to live in the high Himalayas. Scientists have long maintained that this Yeti, roughly translated in English as Abominable or Dreadful Snowman, doesn't exist but locals continue to hold its legends as authentic stories integral to their culture. In 1960, Hillary and Doig somehow managed to convince the village people to take this hide-like scalp and have it inspected abroad. Though it later proved to be a hide from a goat-like Himalayan antelope, you can still visit the monastery it is placed in.Know before you go: The village of Khunjung is just 137km from Kathmandu. The local bus network in Nepal is quite efficient and you will easily get a bus till the Sagarmatha National Park. From here the village is a short trek away. To see the images of the Yeti scalp, visit this page.
