Follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary through Nepal

There could be few finer treks into the heart of Sherpa and the Everest region. Michael Dillon has spent the last 40 years trekking the Upper Solu Khumbu, including filming and documenting Sir Edmund Hillary during his return to a mountain region he loved.

After climbing Mt Everest Hillary devoted much of his time to helping improve the quality of life and welfare of the Sherpa people. While many trek the Everest region each year, Mike’s specially devised introduction to a region that he knows so well will provide a rare insight into the life of the Sherpa who live in the shadow of the world’s highest mountain range.
