ABOUT THE BOOK
So youve decided to take the plunge - and quite a plunge, at that. You have decided to spend weeks trekking through the Khumbu region of Nepal, to stand at the foot of Mount Everest. And adding to the challenge, you have decided to do it with your significant other.
As the two of you discussed taking on such an adventure, you were really excited. What a perfect way to bond as a couple and see some really cool stuff! But when the decision was officially made, you began to feel a little twinge of something. What was it: fear? Remorse? Guilt over the fear and remorse? Or perhaps it is just plain old dread.
You and your boyfriend/girlfriend have never gone on a trip this long before. You have never even been alone for that long before. There have always been other things to distract you - work, friends, family, kickball, etc. And talk about the stress. You are both type-A control freaks from the city. And you expect to survive planning a trip together, let alone actually trekking over 100 miles for a month together? This is surely insanity!
MEET THE AUTHOR
Lacey Kohlmoos is a writer, traveler and lover of the arts. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in Drama & the Studies of Women and Gender, the only thing she knew for sure was that she wanted to travel. So, she embarked on a 10 12 month round-the-world trip, then traveled to Costa Rica where she spent one year teaching elementary school English in a small mountain town. Throughout her two years of travels, she's always kept a blog.
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Although it may seem impossibly complicated at first, getting to Jiri is rather simple. Go to one of the many travel agencies lining the Kathmandu streets or ask your guesthouse owner to book a public bus to Jiri. They will tell you how and when to get to the bus station. The journey from Kathmandu to Jiri is about eight hours long, but the views are pretty and the Nepali people delightful.
The trail from Jiri to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp is well-traveled and clearly marked. If you ever get lost (as me and my boyfriend managed to do), there always seems to be a friendly local to show you the way. Before you embark, research the trail and make a rough itinerary for where you want to spend each night, but dont hold yourselves to it if you feel tired and want to stop early or feel full of energy and want to keep going...
