Mt. Everest

Everybody knows that Mount Everest is the tallest land mountain.  About 1 in 10 people who try to summit Chomolugma (what the Sherpas call Mount Everest, which means Mother Goddess of the Universe) perish. 

But you do not need to be an expert climber to experience the beauty and power of Mount Everest.  Most normal people experience Everest by trekking through the pristine Khumbu Valley to see the strength of the great mountain.  Treks depart in February through April and October through December.  On the way there are still many challenges including high altitude thin air, but the mountain, Sherpa villages, Buddhist monasteries and unique wildlife provide for an unforgettable experience. 

The Sherpa people of Nepal are very friendly and hospitable.  Their presence and interaction makes this trip a cultural one, just as much as it is an adventure.  At the end of the journey you will be able to see the 29,028 monolith in all of its glory and several more beautiful peaks in the Himalayan Mountain Range.
