High lakes, gleaming sapphire in the bright, white light of the snow mountains around them. Everest and surrounding peaks looming over you, and also Nepal's longest, highest glacier, behind sunny alpine forests. Prayer flags fluttering over stony trails, and the largest Buddhist monastery in Nepal. Spunky, apple-cheeked little children and thoughtful, hospitable adults. Silence, only broken by the occasional deer or pheasant. Nothing compares to being in the Everest region.
