Great place to stay in Lukla
I had a fantastic stay at the Everest Summit Lodge in Lukla- The lodge is absolutely the best in Lukla and the location is really great, just next to the airport. My flight was delayed for a day, but it was spend in great comfort in the nice garden. The rooms are very nice with heated beds. The heated dining room is a nice place to hang out og the food and the service is fantastic. Can only recommend the place.

A wonderful place to stay in a wonderful village
Pangboche is a great place to stop for the night - and the ESL is a superb place to stay. Wonderful hospitality, superb meals, and comfortable clean rooms with a really excellent hot shower and the nicest toilet facilites I saw in my entire upper Khumbu trek.

Excellent Lodge in beautiful surroundings
Stayed here twice during our recent trip to Nepal - once on the way up the valley from Lukla and once on the way back. Both times our room was excellent - the electric blanket was very welcome. The hot shower and western style toilet were great and the buffet-style food was very good (even for a vegetarian). The little covered balcony was a great place to relax with a book after the treking.

The road less Travelled: Gokyo Ri
The Road Less Travelled: Gokyo Ri
Gokyo Ri is fast becoming one of the more beautiful alternatives to Everest Base Camp. Ri in Sherpa means “Mountain” and from this lesser-known viewpoint, you can see a magnificent vista of the Himalayas as well as the Gokyo glacial lakes.Though Everest Base Camp has always been the main attraction in Khumbu, the trek to Gokyo Ri is an exceptionally surprising alternative that many have found to be more rewarding. The valley of the Dudh Koshi hides her greatest secret and reveals slowly to only those who reach Gokyo Ri. The trail follows Sherpa villages, tea houses, lodges and rhododendron forests along the Dudh Koshi river and gradually ascends through thin air into the Gokyo valley. From the top of Gokyo Ri, the angle allows for the North Face of...
Medical care in Everest
A brief history of Medical care in EverestPrior to the 1950s, the Sherpas had little access to modern medical care in Everest. The closest the Sherpas were to allopathic medicine then was when they went to trade, and went on pilgrimage, to Northern India and Tibet, where they would bring along “traditional Tibetan medicines”.
Sherpa’s usually sought divine intervention, usually trying to find the cause of the illness before treating the symptoms and would seek lhawas, or spirit mediums, and amchi’s, who are practitioners of Tibetan Medicine. One of the first experiences of allopathic medicine was in 1963, during a terrible smallpox epidemic that threatened to ravage the people of the Everest area. Sir Edmund Hillary was on an Expedition, saw that people were starting to succumb to the
Instagram spots in Everest
The best Instagram spots in EverestEverest will always remain a stunning backdrop to that perfect Instagram shot, and with the region’s huge collection of classic panoramic views, the quest to find some of the most iconic photographable locations in Khumbu can be a mini adventure on its own. We follow Sjoerd, a travel photographer on Instagram, to show us some of his favourite shots from his recent sojourn to Khumbu. Let’s have a look!
DingbocheThis stunning bird's eye view of the village of Dingboche (4,410 metres), taken from the viewpoint (5,050m) on the ridge of yak pasture above the village, offers a glimpse of the harsh living environment for the small settlements around Khumbu. Towered by majestic mountains and deep gorges, the region has very little grounds for farming and
Holy Mountain Of Khumbu
HOLY MOUNTAIN OF KHUMBUTrekking to the Khumbu area is iconic because it’s the starting point of so many explorers climbing prolific mountains, and you’re walking in their footsteps. So it’s no surprise that with such a high energy place, there is a deity with equally as much power. Khumbila is a sacred mountain that overlooks the village of Khumjung, and stands at 5760 metres high, or 18,900 feet. It towers over the village of Khumjung, one of the more developed villages in the region, equipped with the Khunde Hospital. According to a story recounted by Susan Haydon in her book “Soundings in Tibetan Medicine”, a woman fell on a steep track and was unconscious for many days, around “Dumje” her husband went to go pray at Khumbila, the staff at the hospital went to go see the festival, and
Gear for your January Trek- the essentials!
Khumbu in the winter doesn’t have to be brutal if you have the right trekking gear for January. The trick is all in the layering.You’ll want to be super warm in the mornings and evenings, but to avoid sweating profusely, you also need to have the option to remove layers and keep them in your day bag. Down below we’ll go through a step-by-step on certain clothing hacks to optimise your January Gear and keep yourself cosy above 4,000 meters. First of all, we recommend Merino wool socks, because it keeps your feet so warm! It’s so much better than cotton socks, and it’ll also help in preventing blisters based on the sheer thickness of the material. Choose socks that go up your calf because you’ll appreciate that extra leg warmth. Another great woolen item to have are thermals. They
Five Things You Need To Buy In Kathmandu, That You Wouldn’t Think Of!
Five Things You Need To Buy In Kathmandu, That You Wouldn’t Think Of!The silver craftsmanship in Nepal is really something else, and luckily for you, we know a pretty good one!

The silver isn’t branded yet so you get a true bargain, with intricately made bracelets, hairpieces, you name it! Plus, it’s such a great souvenir because of its longevity and aesthetic appeal, perfect as a thoughtful birthday present, maybe even personalizations are possible. Prescription glasses, we have an array of “designer” glasses and you can prescriptions at a fraction of the price you would at home. We’re not sure about sunglasses, but we
Comfort and Adventure – Two Adversaries That Complement Each Other
Comfort and Adventure – Two Adversaries That Complement Each OtherEverest is observing a welcome surge in tourism as more travelers are willing to leave behind their comfort zone in pursuit of adventures and lifelong memories, stored and shared perfectly within the vortex of social media. The advent of technology and the social network has brought a profound impact in the Himalayas but this influx of “over-tourism” however, has contributed to steep competitions among the industry professionals, which as always, is directly countered with a reduction in prices and with poor service standards.
Modern travelers’ journey is now very different than it used to be as they bring with them the culture of social media and the thrills of instant gratifications and recognition via social networks.
