In short the trip went like this: we first flew to Delhi, spent 1 day there, and then flew on to Kathmandu. The next day we flew on to Lukla in the Sagarmatha National Park and started our trek to Everest Base Camp. 11 days later we flew back to Kathmandu, and from there we traveled back to Delhi over land through northern India. The last two days we went to Amritsar and back. To see a day-by-day summary of our route, click on More.

Assuming you're talking about Everest BC trek: I didn't see any snakes and can't imagine there being any that high.
