trekking and Climbing to Everest.

Hi all,

I am Nepalese, country where Mount Everest resides. Nepal is a diverse and ancient country where you can see rich religious diversity. People are very friendly and are eager to help you always.
Nepal is also the birth place of lord Buddha.

Nepal is richest country in terms of adventure sports as well. You can do following:
- Mountaineering
- Trekking (Short/Long)
- Hiking
- Bunjy Jumping
- Para gliding
- White Water Rafting (Upto Class 5 Rapids)
- Visiting Ancient Civilization remains (Palace and Ruins)
- Famous Pagoda Style Temples of Nepal
- Marijuana

etc etc

You simply have to come to Nepal in order to view and feel the place.

Suggestions:
- Simply apply for visa which u get easily in Nepalese embassy.
- Book a ticket and come to Nepal.
- From air port take a taxi to city tourist hot spot named 'Thamel'
- There you can get all kinds of service you want that I have listed above.

Visit Nepal and Enjoy as Much as you can!!
Check out pictures of Nepal in Google.

Magnificent Nepal!!

Everest Route Map

Dear Great Outdoors,

I am a Photo Editor working on a children's book on Tenzing & HIllary. We are interested in using your Everest Route Map photo from this page (http://www.greatoutdoors.com/everest-2008/everest-2008-live-on-greatoutdoors) and I would like to ask if you would be able to provide me with a high resolution digital file of this image. I would need to receive a file that is at least around 6x4 inches at 300dpi.

We would be happy to credit you and pay a reproduction fee.

Please let me know if this is a use you would consider, or not.

Many thanks.Regards,

Jerry Marshall

Unbelievable

I know you will never know me, but I have always been fascinated with the notion of climbing Mt Everest and what it would feel like to get to the top of the world. I will never receive that chance, but I commend all of you who have ever put your life in harms way to accomplish such a goal and dream. I have read a great deal over the years about all the expeditions. I find all of it great and sad reading. Nothing good ever goes unpunished I suppose. I cannot imagine the sacrifice but the rewards have to be nothing but spectacular. I have never written to any climber before in my life, I am glad I have now. I have done some climbing in my life. It will never compare. You guys will never get the recognition you deserve. I must be one of the few, or I think I am for appreciating so much of the effort you put in to try to tackle such a feat. Good Luck to all of you who choose to walk to the top of the world. I will always be with you in spirit. God Bless you and God Speed. Thank-You for letting me speak to you in this manner. I will never forget. If you could acknowledge this simple note if it is possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank-You, from Pittsburgh, PA

Mark!
