Tour Details

Everest exerts a pull like no other mountain and trekking to the base of Everest with a group is the perfect way to experience the spectacle of one of the worlds most excellent treks. The mountain scenery is simply spectacular, the complete cultural immersion in the Sherpa culture is fascinating, and the physical challenge a reward in itself.

Your journey to the base of the World’s highest mountain begins in the vibrant city of Kathmandu where you will enjoy a full day sightseeing tour. This trek starts with a heart-throbbing, scary flight to the dangerous airport in Lukla. From here ahead in the trek we get some spectacular views of mountains like Mt.Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Imja Tse, Pumori, etc. Passing through various Sherpa villages like Namche bazaar, Monasteries like Tengboche, Rhododendron forests, crossing over numerous hanging bridges and ascending and descending over multiple types of terrain. This trek becomes all the more cherishable because of the company of friendly and loyal Sherpas. The highest point of the trek is Kala Patthar (5,545m) from where we get a panoramic view of the Mt.Everest 8,848 m and surrounding peaks. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas and visit ancient monasteries, walk through the towns and explore the shops, stop at any of the numerous teahouses sip a glass of sweetened tea or Chang [Millet beer, for the brave hearts] and get a taste of hospitality unique to the Sherpas. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags, prayer wheels and intricately carved Mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing

prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveller.

You’ll be captivated by Nepal, a country of hospitable people, beautiful scenery, and a large variety of cultural traditions. This blend of outdoor adventure and artistic exploration is a great way to experience the Himalaya – the world’s most awe-inspiring mountains.
