Mount Everest (8848meters) is top of the World. This is a teahouse-based trek through Khumbu region past cultivated fields and small villages; we follow the Dudh Kosi before the hard work begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar. Above the tree line the scenery is barren but spectacular. The incredible monastery at Tengboche is a photographer's paradise, set against the backdrop of Ama Dablam, Everest and other huge, white snowcapped mountains.
