Most of the trek is spent above altitudes of 3000 meters in the Khumbu and Imja valleys, whose skylines are dominated by the massive peaks of the Eastern Himalayas.



Although this is a short trek, by Nepal standards, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas, visit ancient monasteries and learn how Lamaistic Buddhism influences Sherpa life. Stop at any of the numerous teahouses sip a glass of sweetened tea or Chang (millet beer) and get a taste of hospitality unique to the Sherpas.

Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags prayer wheels and intricately carved Mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler.

Favourite spots:
Namche, syangboche, tengboche, kalapatthar and base camp

What's really great:

This would be great under 'travel tips' as it is now! Perhaps the travel report is not complete yet, 200 words is very short?
