This is one of the most heart-stopping views of Mount Everest are from Tibet, where the northern flanks of the great massif are unhindered by adjacent peaks or ridges, presenting a breathtaking 13,000 vertical feet of sheer ice and granite. This was the approach used by British mountaineers seeking a way to Everest in the 1920s, and the astonishment they felt upon seeing the great mountain will be equaled, if not surpassed, by your own. J. B. L. Noel wrote in Through Tibet to Everest, “We stood at 16,000 feet above the sea. The valley, a mile wide, ran straight ahead for nearly twenty miles. At its farther end, stretching across, closing the valley, rearing its imposing head of granite and ice, was Everest. Some colossal architect, who built with peaks and valleys, seemed here to have wrought a dramatic prodigy—a hall of grandeur that led to the mountain. ”

Follow in their footsteps on this classic trek (one of our old favorites!),a rare chance to get a close look at the world’s highest peak as well as a stunning assemblage of other chart-topping mountains. Our trek takes you toward the great north face of Everest, where you’ll enjoy a closer look at the world’s highest peak and explore the icy wilds above our camp, a great place for photographing mountains, especially Everest, just overhead. And the trip includes even more: an overland journey across the plains and passes of mysterious Tibet (one of the greatest journeys in all Asia), visits to ancient monasteries suspended in time, and forays to base camps used by climbing expeditions since early the last century.
