Kathmandu, Nepal Jun 10, 2011
If you are looking for a challenging hike, then I recommend going to Kathmandu, Nepal and going on a trek to Everest Base Camp. Of course all manner of order is thrown out the window when you land in Kathmandu as you are exposed to the wonderful aroma of pollution, the constant honking of cars, constant gridlock, and just people everywhere. Being Canadian, that is what is so great about Kathmandu because it is so different. Aside from that, the people are incredibly friendly if you can get past the beggars. Things get much more relaxed once you fly out of Kathmandu and into Lukla and begin the trek to Everest Base Camp. You will be introduced to wonderful villages along the way, simple living and incredible, hard working people throughout. Best of all, no beggars along the way. More importantly, fantastic views of the Himalayas await you. I could tell you more but the best way is to experience it.

I singed up for the trip through Peregrine Adventures and the Sherpas take really good care of you and are also on the lookout for signs of illness especially if they are altitude related. If you go, just be sure to be in fairly decent shape.

Good luck!
