Seasons: Pre-monsoon (March-May) and post-monsoon (October to late November) are ideal. Monsoon and winter treks are possible, but much more difficult.Centres: Access is via Kathmandu, then flights to Lukla. Namche is the central village; Thame, Dingboche also have facilities. Tea houses everywhere.Difficulty: Technically no great difficulties, but the need to acclimatise and manage the transition to altitude are crucial to having a great trek. Some of the high passes (Cho La) will have snow.Must See: For the mountain lover, some of the greatest views on earth, but the friendly Sherpa people, Bhuddist gompas and local culture make this a much greater experience.
The Himalayan kingdom of Nepal is a trekker''s dream. This third edition of the successful Everest guide leads the explorer through Nepal and the Sherpa''s homeland. The mountain panoramas and lives of the Nepalese are clearly documented, together with the detailed needs of the trekker in this challenging but most rewarding region.

Several trekking routes on the Nepalese side of Everest are described. In addition there is information on a trekking route to Base Camp on the Tibetan side of the mountain.
