- Breathtaking views of mountains above 8000m
- Colorful Tibetan villages and magnificent landscapes
- Sherpa villages and Buddhist Monasteries from temperate to snow line regions
This is one of the world’s best treks, and is one of our most popular, set amongst breathtaking high mountain sceneries. Magnificent landscapes, imposing and prestigious peaks, tapering ridges, and colourful Sherpa villages contribute to turning this trek into an unforgettable experience. The route takes you through the high Khumbu Mountains before finally arriving at the foot of Everest.
The starting point for all summit attempts, Everest Base Camp is situated on the Khumbu Glacier. We ascend the Kala Pathar (5,554m) for one of the highlights of this trek and from here one gains a lifelong memory of an incredible panorama of Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, Lhotse and the majestic Everest, or Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the World) in Sherpa language. In Nepali it is Sagarmatha (Brow of the Ocean)). She is undeniably the greatest of all mountains, standing at 8,848M; The impressive Thyangboche Monastery (3,860m) is an important Buddhist monastery, which has the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region.
We are looking very much forward to taking you on a trek of a lifetime.
