Trekking up the Khumbu area in Nepal is the way to reach Everest Base Camp.
The uphills and the altitude may be challenging. However, astounding vistas and the warm welcome of the Sherpas, the Khumbu residents, are very rewarding.
A detour in Thame, the village of Tenzin Norgay and Apa Sherpa, allows an easier acclimatation and a deeper exploration of the Sherpa culture.
The Pandemic has stopped tourism, which is the main source of income for this region. Let’s hope it can resume soon and safely.
