Detailed Product Description

2006, 3rd edition. 255 pp, color photos and color maps. Guide to the most popular trekking region in the Himalaya. Lodges, teahouses, permits, health - all are dealt with in this indispensable guide. With updated information, clear mapping & superb photography, including detailed descriptions of approachroutes from both Nepal & Tibet.

Everest and the Khumbu region of Nepal is one of the great trekking regions of the world. The guide includes all the main trekking routes, including from Lukla (and Jiri) to Namche, and routes to Thame, Gokyo, Thangboche, Lobuche, Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. Includes the route in Tibet from Tingri to the North side and Rongbuk monastery/glacier.

Seasons:

Pre-monsoon (March-May) and post-monsoon (October to late November) are ideal. Monsoon and winter treks are possible, but much more difficult.

Centres

Access is via Kathmandu, then flights to Lukla. Namche is the central village; Thame, Dingboche also have facilities. Tea houses everywhere.

Technically no great difficulties, but the need to acclimatise and manage the transition to altitude are crucial to having a great trek. Some of the high passes (Cho La) will have snow.

Must See

For the mountain lover, some of the greatest views on earth, but the friendly Sherpa people, Bhuddist gompas and local culture make this a much greater experience.
