Check out the long trail through the Khumbu Valley of Nepal the climbers will cover in about eight to 10 days, from Lukla to Namche Bazaar and Thyangboche, and finally to Everest Base Camp. And see the convoluted climbing route from Everest Base Camp, up through the Khumbu Icefall, through the Western Cwm and up the Lhotse Face to the South Col--where the journey for the summit really begins.
