The big boys

The highlight of any Himalayan trek is the first glimpse of the roof of the world.  Mt. Everest, or Sagarmartha, or Qomolangma stands large at 29,029 feet and the tallest in the world.  Eight of the highest summits in the world are in Nepal and Nine of the tallest summits are apart of the Himalayan range.  On the Everest Base Camp trek you are treated to views of five of these top ten mountains including Lhotse and Cho Oyu as well as other holy and picturesque mountains like Ama Dablam.
