Why to go
- See the tallest mountains in the world – Everest. And its neighbours - Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori and Ama Dablam. Isn’t that reason enough?
- Challenge yourself on hikes to Nangkartshang Peak (5050m), Everest Base Camp (5300m) and Kala Patthar (5600m).
- Soak up the local culture, eat local food, visit Sherpa villages and remote monasteries
- This is a Lodge to Lodge trek. Which means, you don’t need to rough it out in tents, but get to stay in basic but comfortable lodges
- Experienced guides and a well-structured trek with acclimatization hikes and rest days ensures you have a safe and enjoyable trip
- Spend two days and discover the historical splendor of Kathmandu
What to know
- You need to be physically fit to be able to complete the trek and to fully enjoy the journey. On most days, you will be trekking for 6 to 8 hours
- Altitude sickness affects even the young and healthy people. It is extremely important to do your acclimatization hikes to adjust to the altitude. Taking a course of Diamox before starting the trek also helps
- As the trail follows the Dudh Kosi and the Imja river, you lose precious altitude each time you cross the river
- Tea Houses and Bakeries dot the entire trail. Try some apple pie while at Dingboche
- Buying a local SIM card at Kathmandu airport is advisable. However, connections are patchy throughout the route
- You only need to carry your day pack on the trek. Your main pack (maximum 12 kgs) is carried for you by our porters
- Yaks may be photogenic, but they are aggressive and unpredictable. Climb to the hillside (not the valley side) of the trail and wait for the Yaks to cross
