ABOUT THE BOOK So you've decided to take the plunge - and quite a plunge, at that. You have decided to spend weeks trekking through the Khumbu region of Nepal, to stand at the foot of Mount Everest. And adding to the challenge, you have decided to do it with your significant other. As the two of you discussed taking on such an adventure, you were really excited. What a perfect way to bond as a couple and see some really cool stuff! But when the decision was officially made, you began to feel a little twinge of something. What was it: fear? Remorse? Guilt over the fear and remorse? Or perhaps it is just plain old dread. You and your boyfriend/girlfriend have never gone on a trip this long before. You have never even been alone for that long before. There have always been other things to distract you - work, friends, family, kickball, etc. And talk about the stress. You are both type-A control freaks from the city. And you expect to survive planning a trip together, let alone actually trekking over 100 miles for a month together? This is surely insanity! Or is it? MEET THE AUTHOR Lacey Kohlmoos is a writer, traveler and lover of the arts. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in Drama & the Studies of Women and Gender, the only thing she knew for sure was that she wanted to travel. So, she embarked on a 10-12 month round-the-world trip, then traveled to Costa Rica where she spent one year teaching elementary school English in a small mountain town. Throughout her two years of travels, she's always kept a blog. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK As for getting back in one piece physically, the key to an injury-free trek to Mount Everest is packing the right equipment and training your body for the physical stress of walking so long and far with weight on your back. Let me first say that my boyfriend and I did not train enough before going on the trek. The first day on the trail was probably one of the least demanding in distance and elevation gain, but it was one of the most painful. We did not injure ourselves only because we walked slower than any of the other trekkers that we encountered on the trail. You can take our approach - that you'll get into shape as you do the trek - but I recommend getting as many multi-day hikes in as you can before attempting the trek. As Kraig Becker writes on his blog Gadling, ...by getting yourself physically ready for the trek, you'll save yourself a lot of grief on the trail. Start training at least a couple months before your departure date so that you can gradually work up to longer hikes at higher altitudes with more weight on your back. This is also important for breaking in hiking boots if you decide to buy new ones... Buy a copy to keep reading!

This is a personal account of the author's 18 day trek in Nepal, visiting Everest base camp, crossing three high passes and ascending two peaks. It combines practical advice with a first hand account of his trip. Partly written as a blog whilst on the trek, it has an immediacy and freshness which captures the challenges, excitement and humour of trekking at over 5000 metres, whilst getting to know eight other people from around the world. It also provides a wealth of practical information, tips and ideas based on the experience of the author as he made his first visit to the Himalayas. He offers suggestions on how to cross the road in Kathmandu - and survive, spot the signs of altitude sickness, keep yourself healthy, avoid blisters and visit the toilet at night! It makes no pretence to be a comprehensive guide to the country or to trekking, but complements such heavyweight tomes with a more personal story which is both entertaining and useful.You learn about his eventful journey from England to Nepal and the challenge of obtaining a visa on arrival at Tribhuvan (Kathmandu) airport. He describes his first impressions of Kathmandu from the mini-bus on the journey from the airport. A cow lazing peacefully amid the chaotic traffic reminds him this is not the UK.The next morning the trek departs. His story takes the reader on the flight to the highest airstrip in the world at Lukla; on to Namche Bazaar the unofficial capital of the Khumbu region and setting off point for all treks in the Everest region; over Kongma La at 5500m; the barrenness of Everest Base Camp; climbing Kala Pattar, at 5545m the highest altitude reached; crossing Cho La at 5420m; climbing Gokyo Ri at 5483m; the sheer joy of wilderness camping at 5130m and seeing the sun rise from behind the Everest range the next morning; crossing Renjo La at 5400m; before finally returning to Kathmandu and visiting some of the sights. As well as the story of his trek, he offers practical advice and suggestions on preparations before you go and for during the trek. Without any claim to be an expert, the author nevertheless provides invaluable insights which will help you enjoy a similar adventure. Topics he covers include how fit do you need to be, trekking and accommodation options, what kit is useful, accessing WiFi, shopping and bargaining, money matters and tipping.The book is illustrated throughout with over 70 stunning photographs to bring the journey, the country and the mountains to life as you read. The author was aged 67 when he completed the trek to tick it off his bucket list. Uncertain beforehand if he would be physically and mentally capable of trekking for this length of time and at such high altitude, he surprised himself with his resilience and ability to stay healthy and happy. His story will give inspiration to anyone of any age contemplating such an adventure, but uncertain if it is right for them. Even if you have no interest in venturing beyond your living room, you will enjoy hearing his story and may even find yourself inspired.

Trekkers planning a journey to the Mount Everest region, or anyone interested in Nepal will enjoy this account of my travels. I spent 22 winters in Nepal, and walked into the Everest region perhaps thirteen times. This book is about a trek into the Solu-Khumbu region, the foot of Mount Everest, as well as up the Arun river to Tashigaon, in the Makalu/Barun area. This is the home of the Sherpas. This book describes my travels along the network of trails, the people and animals I met, and the adventures I had. Traveling in the Himalayas means walking, not so essential in some parts of the world these days, but still an essential part of life in the Himalayas. Although many people trek in the Solu-Khumbu in hopes of glimpsing Mount Everest, what many travelers recall most vividly from their encounters in Nepal is the Sherpa people's genuine openness and friendliness, their simple dignity, charm, and grace. The book describes the Sherpa people, Buddhism, Yak husbandry and the wild animals that inhabit this amazing part of the world.The Himalayas have isolated Nepal from the Western world for centuries, and even today the ruggedness of these mountains continues to insulate the people, customs, and religions of this unusual land from the influence of the industrialized world. There are few roads extending into the Himalaya, and it is necessary to walk for days or even weeks to reach many destinations. Nepal's combination of natural beauty and unique cultures reveal themselves only to those who hike into its rugged mountains. The traveler is completely immersed in the culture and in touch with the people, environment, and wildlife. One of the joys of traveling is talking with the Nepalese, many of whom speak English. They have a great pride in their homeland, and are happy to explain their culture and the natural history of the countryside. 300 pages, illustrated with over 50 black and white photos.
