    Thumbs up Everest Base camp & kalaphater Trek

    Everest region [/URL]is the most demanded region for the trekking in Nepal. Trekkers from all over the world envision getting the breathtaking Himalayan views, alpine landscape, Lakes and the Sherpa cultural habitats. One of the wonderful aspects of Everest region trekking is that you are about to touch the top of the world- Mt. Everest (8848m) and its surrounding peaks. No matter how tough are the treks, but you will be always allure to explore this mysterious and mystical part of the north-east Nepal and make your holidays remarkable with exciting experiences. Except Jiri to Everest base camp trek, all other trek begins from a tiny airstrip of Lukla. Everest treks are for the adventure seeking trekkers, but even you can enjoy some less technical treks.

    BBC showed a movie/documentry recently of the 1924 Mallory expedition.
    They had found and repaired the film.
    Included are shots of old village life high up.
    In those days they took an army to transport all the gear to build camps.
    Mallory and Irvine were 400 metres short of summit when they fell to their deaths.

    The daughter of a very good mate of mine is doing the trec to the base camp in November.
    She's young and very excitable.

    Whilst we were in Adelaide we asked some people who'd done it about the trec and, apparently it's the most horrendous mash of people all struggling along with scant regard for the place or the people.
    Sounded absolutely horrible.
    Tourism gone mad.

    Indeed.

    Worse of all it attracts the Guardianista / Gap Yah / millennial types who believe that their mere presence in a dirt poor country is an act of global altruism.

    Far better to head off piste with a guide, porters and cooks etc. You'll not only see the reality of Nepalese life but contribute directly by employing locals. Take a Sat phone and GPS and you're never more than a phone call away from an emergency evacuation if something nasty happens.

    If you have the misfortune to come across veginista trekists clad in Berghaus synthetic fibres I found that buying a couple of chickens from the locals to be publicly slaughtered for a delicious curry for myself and a local family was enough to scare them off.

    Good watch that, seems to be good evidence they did make it to the summit and died on the way down.

    You can helicopter into Everest View Hotel. The only downside is the chance of death from HACE. Nice views though.

    Just to reach base camp is an achievement in itself.
    The risk to health is massively increased through oxygen deprivation.
