Because we have never been a fan of ordinary bus tours, we're throwing in Cox & Kings' new six-day "mountain safari" via a French-manufactured, oxygen-equipped Ecureuil to see eight of Earth's tallest peaks. Mt. Everest summiteers narrate their experiences as you whiz past the 29,035-foot mountain then later take in the Langtang, Manaslu, Lamjung, and Annapurna ranges and other Nepalese sights. Since the Ecureuil seats only two guests, this is a downright romantic trip, allowing you to score major points with your girlfriend while conveniently involving superslick machinery.
