Footsteps of Hillary

Got your trekking pants on? Good. Fly from Kathmandu to Phakding then start walkin’. Check out Namche Bazaar, have a lil’ look at old Everest, bliss out in the coolest monastery in the world, eat cake, visit Everest Base Camp. Yeah… this is a pretty ace trip. 

Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay were the first ones to summit Everest in 1953. Even though you won't be climbing the great mountain you'll still feel the rush of being up there where it all began.
