Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory

The third highest mountain on earth, Mt Kanchenjunga (8586m), marks Nepal's eastern border with India. This holy peak is fringed to the south by lush rhododendron and temperate forest; home to a quarter of Nepal's red panda population. The trek to Kanchenjunga Base Camp passes through Limbu, Rai and Sherpa villages before reaching an alpine wonderland of majestic peaks finely sculpted by rivers and glaciers. A detour from the main trail at Ghunsa heads over the Nango La to Olangchun Gola, a vibrant and friendly community, which has traded with Tibet for centuries before looping back to the starting point at Suketar.

Food for thought:
It's rare that trekking companies include meals on trek. But we include 3 hearty meals a day, beverages and water, all carefully prepared. We also cater to most dietary requirements. It's an essential part of our support. Buying food & plastic bottled water means taking unnecessary risk & creates an environmental hazard.
