Introduction

Mount Everest is the roof of the world. Standing at 29,029ft it is the highest point on the planet and is well known to command some of the most amazing views possible to witness with the human eye. However you don't have to go to the top to appreciate the awesome majesty imposed by this fantastic mountain. The climb is a twelve-day hike through some of the Himalayas most impressive valleys and ranges to the base camp of the world's largest mountain. The route passes through some of the Himalayas most stunning areas and offering some of the most phenomenal panoramic views of Everest. There is no need to be well-seasoned mountaineers, but it is a strenuous climb, and will take dedication and perseverance to reach the top.

This classic walk through the Sherpa homeland of Solu-Khumbu is strenuous high altitude trek with a clear-cut goal - to see Everest. Much to their surprise, many people find the snout-like Everest out-ranked by peaks like Ama Dablam and the Lhotse wall. You will encounter numerous Monasteries on your way to the Base camp, where you can observe daily rituals and the prayers of the Monks. Khumbu is the best region in Nepal for close-up mountain views.
