Everest View Trek

The life of mountain dwellers is vastly different from one we lead in the city and is worth having a look at. To look into the heart of the villages of these people we offer an exceptional 8 days trek featuring a wide range of spectacular scenery combined with unique cultural encounters with the Sherpa people who inhabit these high altitude regions.

The journey begins in the medieval city of Kathmandu, from where a short flight to the beautiful village of Lukla (2800m) will drop us to the heart of the Solu Khumbu region. The trek continues through the lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, with pine forests, rhododendron flowers and an abundance of wildlife, to Namche Bazaar (3440m). A day of rest is necessary in Namche in order to get acclimatized to higher altitudes. The following days trekking will bring us to the village of Tengboche (3930m), home to the highest Buddhist monastery in the world (4100m) and also reputed by photographers as one of the best places to capture the awesome beauty of Mt. Everest (8848m) and its neighboring peaks.

The concluding days of this adventure will be spent in the delightful and scenic villages of Khunde (3500m) and Khumjung, where we will have the opportunity to interact with the legendary Sherpa people and participate in their astonishing traditional lifestyle. Back down to Lukla from where we will take a short flight back to Kathmandu, enjoying the last views of the awe-inspiring Himalayan range and its people.
