This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
The official start of spring is still some days away and winter still has a firm grip on much of the country, so if you’re like us you’re dreaming about where you’d rather be. The Bing Travel team wanted to know where you, our readers, wished you could spend a week in spring. We asked our Facebook fans and Twitter followers to share their dream spring break destinations, and got some incredible responses, which we turned into a new slide show called 10 Dream Spots for Spring Break.One reader summed up what was on many of your minds by writing where she wanted to be: “On a beach with beautiful clear blue water and lots of palm trees.” We got votes for Hawaii, Florida, and many beaches in the Caribbean. Some places were new to us – such as Siargao, Philippines – and we’re excited to add those to our travel wish lists. Thanks to everyone who participated, and enjoy the slide show. Here’s hoping it inspires your spring travels. Didn’t get a chance to add your favorite spring break hot spot? Share it now by posting a comment below!
Anywhere along the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia! Or conversely, anywhere along the Ningaloo Reef on Australia's west coast. Both would have to rate amongst the top few reefs in the world.
One of thje least visited National Parks in the country, Big Bend National Park, located way south of Interstate 10 is located in one of the hardest places to get to. Spring beak time hits at one of the prime time to visit this National Park that boasts its' only mountain range- located in west Texas in one of the youngest deserts in the world, Big Bend gets its' name from where the Rio Grande River has carved and follows what makes up the Big Bend of Texas. It's been described as where every rock has a jagged edge, every plant has a thorn and every animal has one or both- Visiting Big Bend is coming to a place where one can hike in solitude, canoe or raft through magnificent canyons, and get caught up in mother natures handiwork looking in any direction. the closest commercial airport is all most 250 miles away, and big cities farther than that-

Our program and present
Everest Region Trek:
The Khumbu or Everest region is the most popular trekking area in Nepal. It would probably be the most popular destination, but it is more difficult to get to Solukhumbu than to the Annapurna area. To get near Everest, you must either walk for 10 days or fly to Lukla, a remote mountain airstrip where flights are notoriously unreliable.
SoluKhumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain (8848 m.), but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest base camp at an elevation of about 5340 meters. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545-meter bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 m.).
Other than the problem of access, the other major complication to an Everest trek is the high likelihood of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). This potentially deadly disease, commonly known as altitude sickness, is caused by climbing too quickly to a high elevation. Be sure to read the section on mountain sickness in the Health & First Aid chapter if you are planning an Everest trek. If you suffer symptoms of altitude sickness and cannot go to base camp, you can still make a worthwhile trek to less ambitious destinations such as Namche Bazaar, the administrative headquarters of the Khumbu region; Khumjung or Thami, more typical Sherpa villages; or Tengpoche Monastery. From Tengpoche you will have an excellent view of Everest and its more spectacular neighbor AmaDablam (6856 meter)

Annapurna Region Trek:-
Annapurna trekking has been wildly recognized as a naturalist's paradise. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rare snow leopards and blue sheep. Other areas of the region protect bird species such as the multi-colored Impeyan, kokla, blood pheasant amongst a multitude of other birds, butterflies and insects. Many plants native to Nepal are found in this forest. The conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate rhododendron forest in the world.
For thousands of years people of diverse ethnic backgrounds have scratched a livelihood out of its steep hillsides. The advent of tourism and the phenomenal rise in human population has triggered a process of environmental deterioration. In 1968 Nepal's King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation launched the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.
With international help, the project aims to integrate environmental conservation with development that can sustain the area's reserve base. The project aspires to improve local living standards, protect the environment and develop a more "sensitive" form of tourism. One of its most important functions has been to develop and teach courses on environmental education in local schools.

The Kingdom of Nepal is blessed with the most awe inspiring gift of nature anywhere in the world. It is home to the mighty Himalayas, which mean’s “abode of snows” in Sanskrit. These mountains are the root of thousand’s of years of Nepali culture. They intimidate us with their overwhelming size and humble us with their apparent immortality. They are home to 8 of the 10 highest mountains in the world including the highest of them all Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha as the Nepali’s call it) rises to the top of the Himalayas at 29,028 ft. It truly is an honour to sit beneath such a natural spectacle.
Viewfinder treks want to provide you with the first hand experience of climbing a beautiful peak in Nepal. The largest mountains in Nepal draw professional climbers around the world but many smaller peaks ( by Nepali standards) are available to climb. They are mainly non-technical climbs at high elevation that give you a true mountaineering experience. Eco Trek has experienced climbing guides that have climbed and guided these peaks many times. Safety is always are number 1 consideration with any climb or trek. A minimum of 4 people is needed in order to climb a peak. We can accommodate everything from the climb itself to the trek to the mountain and any airline flights needed for the trip. We can even provide accommodation and transportation in Kathmandu.
