Khumbu Peaks and Valleys

Among the unexpected joys of a trek to the south base camp of Mount Everest is the spectacular scenery.  Though an up-close view of the highest mountain in the world (29,035 feet) may be the trekker’s ultimate goal, the numerous “majestic” peaks and river valleys encountered along the way truly make this journey unforgettable. Below are some examples.
