The Forgotten Heroes Of The Himalayas | Elia Saikaly

Since Mt. Everest was first successfully climbed in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay from the South side in Nepal, it's become ever so common for daring men and women to tempt their fate and set their sights on the highest point on planet Earth.

Others, with just as much passion for discovery set out on a grand adventure with the intent to explore and experience the classic trails of the Khumbu Valley that lead to Mt. Everest base camp. An unparalleled vacation filled with majestic mountains, glorious sunsets, an unlimited supply of children, monasteries and cultural experiences to last a life time.
