Feb. 11: Trekking in the Himalayas. Join Tom for a presentation on his trek through the Himalayas with breathtaking views of towering mountains including Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Everest, the world’s tallest peak. Tom hiked the remote western Khumbu region into small villages, staying in local tea houses along the way and visiting Namche Bazaar, the historical trading center of the region. There are no roads and all transportation is by foot or yak. Western Khumbu is a lesser-traveled region of Nepal that is full of exotic Buddhist temples, friendly locals, and scenic villages surrounded by massive snow-covered peaks.
