    Great shot! You can see the clashing of culture, the modern clothes and shoes amongst the old way of living.

Three Nepali kids in the Khumbu Valley

The story behind "Three Nepali kids in the Khumbu Valley"

There are 2 main ways to get to the Mount Everest Basecamp. In Tibet you can drive all the way (to 5200m altitude!), in Nepal you will have the pleasure to trek for about a week. After flying to Lukla (landing on a sloping, uphill airstrip, you will walk through gorgeous valleys.

There are many simple teahouses which cost barely nothing, and most of them serve great food. There are many children running about, who are always enthusiastic. They can play with simple toys and are quite happy without the latest playstation. If you start the trek early enough, you might see them standing still for a moment quite sleepy as the 3 above :)
