It was wonderful to see those beautiful faces everywhere around a place where there was no easy access to anything. The ever smiling Sherpa’s proved that money cannot buy happiness. Besides, the Everest looked absolutely amazing and I had a wonderful time in Nepal with Everest Base Camp treks and tours.
