NOV 12-DEC 1, 2014 NEPAL MOUNTAIN HIKING ADVENTURE Rating O: (Angeles Chapter, Crescenta Valley,) Twenty day hiking trip to see the highest mountains in the world. Two different multi-day hiking treks in two different mountain ranges. Our first hike is the Everest Base camp hike. We don’t do the full hike but do a shorter version with substantially less elevation gain than the hike to base camp. You will see many of the spectacular mountain, glacier and valley views of the full hike with less distance and elevation. Our trek begins in Lukla hiking to Namche Bazaar. From there, hike to Thame, Khumjung, Tengboche and other villages where you will have the opportunity to have a close view of Everest and the surrounding mountains. See some of the beautiful mountain monasteries on this trip. After we finish this hike, we will have a short respite in Kathmandu before heading to the Langtang Valley. We should have many opportunities to see this area of the Himalayas near the Tibetan border. We will be hiking in Langtang National park with beautiful mountain and glacier views. For both hikes, stay in tea houses or small hotels. Carry a day pack with your clothes and personal items. The tour includes sightseeing in Kathmandu visiting temples, markets, and other places in the capital. Includes visiting the famous Boudhanath temple a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
