Asia’s Most Incredible Treks

One for serious climbers: Mount Everest, Nepal. - The mother of all mountains reaches a lofty 8,848m, making it the world’s highest peak and the ultimate ascent for ardent mountaineers. If the pre-climb training, acclimatizing and sheer scale of the summit climb (not to mention the 200+ death count) is enough to put you off, opt instead for a trek to Everest base camp, an epic 2-3 week journey of sweeping Himalayan vistas and stopovers in remote Sherpa villages.

Nepal What more could be more wonderful than making a travel to the country of the Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. A small landlocked country, full of natural beauties has a lot of snow capped mountains every mountain climbers and trekkers would want to step their foot on. @Getupandgotours Via:

I believe Everest is too big for me & that's okay. Really. I want to at least go to base camp & see Khumbu icefall. I want to do that very badly. Mt. Everest at sunrise Gorgeous

"A single thread in a tapestry though its color brightly shine Can never see its purpose in the pattern of the grand design And the stone that sits on the very top of the mountain's mighty face Does it think it's more important than the stones that form the base? So how can you see what your life is worth Or where your value lies? You can never see through the eyes of man You must look at your life look at your life through heaven's eyes" #ThePrinceOfEgypt #ThroughHeavensEyes
