Berg Adventures Posters for Sale

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

If you have ever been trekking in the Everest region of Nepal, you will recognize these posters. Taken by Wally Berg on past expeditions in Nepal, these images have been admired by thousands of trekkers on the walls of our favorite lodges and stores throughout the Khumbu. Last spring while in Nepal, I heard countless people marveling at the seemingly precarious campsite on Ama Dablam and aweing at those brave enough to scale Everest’s summit ridge. We have the posters in our office and rarely does someone leave without asking about where they were taken and what it is like to be there.

Now the Berg Adventures posters are available for purchase. Hang them in your exercise room or workshop for inspiration, or put them in a frame and hang them in your office as a conversation starter. They make the perfect gift for those with Everest aspirations or for those who simply love the mountains and admire the strength of the human spirit.

New Trip! Everest Region Christmas Trek 2012

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Get ready for a Christmas you will never forget!

You are invited to join us on a special holiday adventure for the whole family. We’re off to Nepal to spend Christmas and New Year’s trekking with our family and friends in Everest’s Khumbu region. We have selected the dates to match school holiday schedules and have designed the itinerary with kids in mind – with extra rest days and shorter hiking distances. With special visits to schools, monasteries and even a medical clinic, your kids are sure to learn a lot about life in a place very different from their own homes. We will encourage local families to trek with us some days so that the kids can learn from each other and play together. Don’t have kids? That’s okay, you’re still welcome to join us!

View of Namche

We will travel from Kathmandu to Lukla on December 23rd and will arrive in Namche in the afternoon on December 24th. You will wake up Christmas morning for a short walk to the National Park Overlook to get your first views of Mount Everest before returning to the cozy lodge to open presents and share a special Christmas breakfast. You will have the rest of the day to relax in Namche, the economic hub for the entire Khumbu region. Since Christmas is not a holiday in Nepal, businesses in Namche will be open for you to shop and explore before it is time for a Christmas dinner feast.

Our highpoint on the trek will be Pangboche at 13,123ft/4000m. Here we will have another rest day for visiting the local lama, venturing out on a day hike or simply relaxing in the lodge which has fantastic views of Ama Dablam and Everest, and unmatched hospitality. We will return to Lukla for a New Year’s Eve celebration with our new Sherpa friends before returning to Kathmandu.

The trip begins and ends in Kathmandu where you will be able to visit the infamous Monkey Temple and other sites in this exciting city. We recommend that you fly through Bangkok as it is the most direct and most comfortable way to travel. If you have a few extra days at the end of the trek and would like to spend some time in Thailand, we have some great family friendly suggestions for you!

While you may imagine blustery, cold weather in the Himalayas in December, it is actually a beautiful month to go trekking. It is the driest month in Nepal and the temperatures are quite mild. Seasoned trekkers in Nepal will all say the same thing, that December is the nicest month to trek –dry trails, quiet lodges, few clouds, and fantastic views.
