Discover the top photo spots in the Everest Region
For me, a day spent trekking and taking photos in the Everest Region is about as good a day as I can hope to have. Nothing rivals the world’s highest mountain range for sheer magnificence and it doesn’t disappoint photographically. Without the need for mountaineering skills, it’s possible to get to some of the greatest viewpoints on earth at the top of trekking peaks such as Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar, and there’s a multitude of trails and side trails to explore. Giant peaks above immense glaciers which work their way into tumbling rivers and down to forests full of colourful rhododendrons. There are photos and adventure to be had everywhere. It’s simply impossible not to be inspired in the Everest Region.
The book ‘Trekking in the Everest Region’ published by Trailblazer (written by Jamie McGuiness) is indispensable. I haven’t gone into much detail in this guide regarding planning and trekking equipment as you should certainly refer to a guide book before trekking in the Everest Region. This book will tell you everything you need to know. If you plan to spend time in other trekking regions, the book ’Trekking in the Nepal Himalayas’ published by Lonely Planet is very good (Bradley Mayhew). Even though mobile reception is surprisingly good in the Everest region, you should never rely on it. Make sure you have downloaded this guide before leaving Kathmandu. Be sure to have a good map of the region and a compass with you.
