Trek to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest! Then, visit Kalapthhar and go on a helicopter tour of Gokyo Lake on your discovery of the Everest region before heading back to Kathmandu.

This 12-day trip begins in Kathmandu, from where you will take a mountain flight to Lukla and begin trekking. Trek through rhododendron forests, along river banks, and on stony trails. Experience the remote mountain culture of the local people as you pass through villages and monasteries. Soak up the stunning views of the Himalayan giants. After the trek, we ride back to Lukla by helicopter from Gorakshep. One of the most exciting parts of this Everest trip is the helicopter tour over the pristine Gokyo Lake, which is also a popular trekking destination among trekkers who travel the Everest region.

Yuniar's review for another Alpine Club of Himalaya tour
“It was a very pleasant trip with Alpine Club of Himalaya. They made our journey the most memorable. They are really committed to their services and do what they say. It gives you an absolute surety about 100% service and delivery. If you decide to travel to Nepal , Bhutan & even Tibet then this company is the best option to go with. If you are looking for any budget travel it is really worth to do with them as well. Andre , Sujan & the team was always there to assist us whenever we needed the most. The drivers, cars, hotels all was great and I had no complains at all. I will highly recommend this to everyone. Thank you so much for making our first trip to Nepal such a positive experience.”

Christina's review for another Alpine Club of Himalaya tour
“We had awesome trek to see Gurung community with the help of Sujan and Alpine club of Himalaya. We managed historic hill trek to Siklis still retains an aura of old times. Historically, Siklis is renowned as one of the major origin places of Gurung Community. Here, we find the various ritual practices of Gurungs especially the works of Jhankri (shaman) and Lama (priest), who have important roles in marriage, death and day-to-day lives. Traditional technologies like alcohol fermentation, weaving clothes and sacks from the wild nettle, weaving various bamboo products, traditional water mills and stone grinders, wooden threshers etc are also the important features of Siklis. In this region we spot Nepals birds of prey including the 9ft wingspan Lammergeyer. The region is rich in flora and fauna particularly birds and butterfly because of its pristine forested surroundings and the great mountain views add an excitement. The experience was just awesome. Thanks to the entire Alpine team karma and dikki.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
