March 2016 

Come join Sally Hunsdorfer and The Himalayan Project team for an unrivaled adventure in Nepal from March 8 to March 23, 2016.    Few mountains in the world have the mysticism or draw of Everest.  This is a classic trek which starts at an elevation of 9200' and climbs to 15,000', past the renowned Tengboche Monastery, to receive blessings and teachings from Lama Ghesi at Pangboche Monastery, trekking alongside the world’s mightiest and arguably most awesome and beautiful mountains! This is a challenging trek through beautiful rhododendron, oak, silver fir and birch forests, past amazing alpine scenery and traditional Sherpa villages and monasteries.  You will experience firsthand the rhythms of Sherpa daily life, staying in private homes in the village of Chaurikharka and visiting the village school and its classrooms which have been a major focus of development for The Himalayan Project over the last several years.  Discover why few who visit can remain indifferent to the strength, warmth and loyalty of the Sherpa people.  Upon return to Kathmandu explore the fascinating history and culture of this medieval city.  Come join Sally for a once in a lifetime journey!
