A little bit up - a little bit down... Ein nepalesischer Spruch, aber weit davon entfernt, Trekking im Himalaja zu beschreiben. An einigen Tagen geht es bis zu 1,8 km bergauf. Verfolgen Sie fantastisch bebildert, eine äußerst abwechslungsreiche Reise über vier der vielleicht schönsten Treks in Nepal. Es geht durch das höchste Gebirge der Welt, über den größten Pass, durch das tiefste Tal, zu dem 8.000er Berg der als Erster in der Geschichte bestiegen wurde. Der Weg führt in das Basislager des höchsten Berges dieser Welt, dem Mount Everest. Über einen Gletscherpass geht die Tour zu den schönsten Seen Nepals, um seinen Abschluss in der faszinierenden und beeindruckenden Haupstadt Kathmandu zu finden. Erleben Sie mit, wie man hier an seine körperlichen Grenzen kommen kann und über sie hinaus schreitet, um seine Ziele zu erreichen und am Ende für seine Strapazen aussergewöhnlich belohnt wird. Wie absolutes Hochgefühl und schlagartige Ernüchterung in diesem Gebirge nah bei einander liegen. Das ist Trekking im Himalaja!

Two days east of Lukla was a pleasant yak pasture surrounded by high peaks. When Col. Jim Roberts set out to look for it in 1953, he ended up making the first ascent of Mera Peak and sowing the seeds of Himalayan tourism. Mera Peak has become a popular goal for trekkers and novice mountaineers, but few people climb to its true summit, and fewer still travel beyond it to find the secret yak pasture that sparked Roberts’ journey. The yak pasture was the Hongu Valley, a hidden sanctuary of grassland, lakes and glaciers linking Mera Peak with the Everest region and Island Peak to the north. Fifty years after Roberts, Mark Horrell embarked on a trek through Nepal’s Khumbu region to follow in his footsteps, climb the two trekking peaks at either end of the valley, and resolve a long-standing mystery about Mera Peak’s height. Join Mark on a captivating journey through this enchanting region of high mountains and remote valleys.
