"It’s not the mountain one must conquer, but one’s self." -- Sir Edmund Hillary

This outing combines the highest peaks on Earth, Himalayan culture, and mountaineering history. Nepal is a fascinating country with spectacular scenery, ancient Hindu and Buddhist religions, and friendly people.  We'll visit three world heritage sites around Kathmandu,  fly to Lukla and trek via the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar and the Buddhist Tengboche monastery to the best Mt. Everest viewpoint at Kala Patar (18,450 feet) and Mt. Everest base camp, before descending to Lukla and returning to Kathmandu.  Trekkers will stay in comfortable lodges with three hot meals a day provided in the lodges.  Porters carry the overnight gear so you need only carry a daypack. 

If you're a basic climbing graduate or equivalent and would like to combine this scenic trek with a climb over three high passes to Makalu basecamp, check out the Global Adventure "Trek to Nepal's Mount Everest Basecamp and Kala Patar, Climb to Makalu Basecamp"!
