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.

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.
