Base Camp

Each year, tens of thousands of tourists (called "trekkers")
journey into Nepal's Sagarmāthā National Park, making their way up to witness the madhouse that is Everest Base Camp. Most of those tourists fly into Lukla, lovingly known as "the most dangerous airport in the world." From Lukla, it's just a few days' hike into the Himalayas along a path that has been neatly cultivated to facilitate the hordes of visitors. It's Disneyland.

Your Say

I don't know what the big deal is. I can watch all that stuff for free on YooToob and my popcorn doesn't get all blowed away.
The challenges I face down here in Borderland are to be able, walk ten miles back from where my Jeep broke down to the nearest place might have a truck to pull me out and it's a hunnert degrees and I got more water than I can carry. To be able, go anywhere and have sufficient firepower for any unpleasant social surprises.

"Because it's there". Yeah, right, good a reason as any I reckon.
