When I was young I dreamed of moving to Nepal, and finding a Sherpa to guide me to a high mountain peak where I could meet a meditation master. He would tell me the meaning of life.
Unfortunately, I went to college and got a job instead, but at least Google Maps has my back. They created an interactive trek for those of us who can still only dream of this epic adventure.
From above, these peaks look impossibly big, and are a good reminder to weary travelers of how small we actually are. (Screenshot/YouTube)
To find a Sherpa start at a temple. (Screenshot/YouTube)
Once inside don’t forget to breathe and deeply appreciate the detail that went into this sanctuary. (Screenshot/YouTube).
Did you find your Sherpa yet? Ok, good. Lets get moving, these mountains won’t be here forever! Uhh wait I take that back. (Screenshot/YouTube)
Wait, where did my Sherpa just go!? When in doubt just head towards the huge peaks. (Screenshot/YouTube)
The local people really know how to enjoy life. (Screenshot/YouTube)
As this wise indigenous woman reminds us, as travelers perhaps our only rule should be remember to smile.
This trip really weeds out backpackers. Its more of a head packer type of thing. (Screenshot/YouTube)
In the end is it about the journey or the destination? I guess we’re all trying to figure it out. Maybe the answer is to always stay mid smile, no matter where we are. (Screenshot/YouTube)
