Sagarmatha National Park
Traveling the Yak Superhighway
En route from Namche Bazaar, Nepal, we stopped to visit the Tenzing Norgay Memorial Chorten. Norgay was a member of the first expedition team to summit Mt. Everest in 1953, along with Sir Edmund Hillary. While trekking in the Nepal Himalayas on our way to Everest base camp, on this day we enjoyed dramatic views of Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and the south face of Lhotse. If you are an outdoor adventure enthusiast, this trek is an amazing way to view some of the greatest 8,000m+ peaks. And when you end up back in Lukla where you started, no matter what route you take, you truly realize what a great accomplishment it is to come full circle! Check one off of the bucket list.
