A list of mountains cannot be complete without the highest one… With 8848m/29,029ft Mount Everest lies on the border of Nepal and Tibet. The Mount Everest BaseCamps are very nice places to visit even if you are not a high altitude mountaineer.

An expedition on Mount Everest takes 2 months and can cost from $10,000 to almost 8 times as much, depending on the outfitter and route. The Nepalese BaseCamp can be reached by way of a 10 days trekking where you will sleep in simple but nice teahouses, passing other Himalayan giants like Nuptse and Ama Dablam. The BaseCamp on the Northern side can be reached by car, which will show you a lot of culture on the way.

Vor kurzem haben wir wieder von einer Vier-Tage-Wanderung mit einem Freund in den Annapurna Himalaya-Bereich. Bewundern Sie die spektakuläre Landschaft, zerklüftete Gelände und äußerst gastfreundlichen Einheimischen, habe ich nie besucht einen anderen Ort auf der Erde wie Annapurna.

Uns helfen, das Beste aus unserer Wanderung war unsere freundlichen und kompetenten Führer Sanjib Adhikari, ein Spezialist für Trekking-Führer und Organisator Expedition in Thamel, dem pulsierenden Herzen von Kathmandu. Er gekonnt uns über den tückischen Bergpässe geführt, wies auf die Vielfalt von Flora und passierten wir, abends nach dem Wandern, serviert die Mahlzeiten und spielten Karten mit uns.

Wissend, dass es gibt durchaus ein paar andere, weniger fähigen und erfahrenen Führern als Sanjib, würde ich auf jeden Fall empfehlen ihn auf andere Wanderer. Seine Website ist:

Title: “a perfect trip…….not to be missed “

"This year at the end of february i went in Nepal for 18 days for the second time and i did a small trekking in the Annapurna region, I went to visit Pokhara, Kathmandu, Bakthapur and Nagarkot and I saw the National Park of Chitwan and in this trip I had the pleasure to meet Sanjib Adhikari.

He is an independent trekking guide and tour operator in Nepal and he has already obtained trekking guide license from the ministry of tourism, government of Nepal.

In his work Sanjib Adhikari is a person very responsible and serious, very helpful and attentive to his customers, he knows very well the mountain because he has many years of experience and is also an excellent guide for visiting the cities, the best thing for me is that he loves his country very much and loves his work and always manages to convey all his enthusiasm with simple ways and always with the smile.

Sanjib is also a very funny person and after this experience we became a very good friend

For these reasons I am very glad to recommend Mr. Sanjib Adhikari

The good news is that you can join a group and they'll organise everything for you. Mountain Travel Sobek or Nepal Uncovered could help - have a look at the ads on the Trekking Everest page on WR:

Valentina, did you ever do your Mt. Everest climb?

Here is a suggested story posted on our forum ( by a Nepalese architect and journalist worried about global warming in his beautiful country...

Dear all

I come from the land of Mt. Everest. Feel proud about it but the global warming is threatening the Himalayas. We people from media could do a lot to save the Himalayas not only for Nepalese but for all in the planet. Let's create a global alliance of Media people within Global Network.


I hope this initiative should be taken up by Global for me...
