Background Reading

As you trek in the shadow of Mt Everest,
you are bound to get curious about the Sherpas, the friendly mountain people who live here.

And then there is Everest lore. The closer you get to the mountain, the more you want to know about its amazing history: how it came to be recognised as the world's highest mountain, the story of its ascent.

Two chapters at the end of the guidebook tell you about these and other fascinating aspects of Everest and its environs.
