Also describes the new Three Passes trek (Dingboche to Namche via Kongma La, Cho La, Renjo La).

Everest has an eternal appeal for mountain lovers and the classic trek to Everest Base Camp is high on the bucket-list of many trekkers. Fully researched after the devastating earthquake of 2015, this guidebook covers the most popular route in the Khumbu Valley, from Lukla via Namche Bazaar and Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, the best viewpoint for Everest. It also describes the classic route from Jiri to Lukla taken by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary, as well as a trek north to Gokyo with its spectacular lakes and the peak of Gokyo Ri. Finally, the Three Passes Trek, also starting in Namche, links the region's major passes and valleys.

The guidebook includes suggestions for side trips and time spent in Namche Bazaar, Pangboche, Dingboche, and Gokyo, as well as two treks approaching Everest from Tibet - Tingri to Rongbuk Everest Base Camp and from Kharta to the Kangshung Face.

The guidebook is packed with essential advice on trekking in the Himalayas, including planning and preparation, trekking formalities, health, and acclimatization, as well as notes on culture and the fascinating history of the region, making this a complete guide to exploring the area.
