Mount Everest in the ultimate challenge for ever growing number of people, but there are also other eight-thousanders like K2, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu. All of the world’s 14 eight-thousanders are situated in Himalaya’s mountain range.

Luckily you can just walk around the trails and enjoy the vast Himalayas which are unforgettable things to do to everyone.
