Trip Overview

This lodge-based trek follows the legendary ‘Everest Trail’ from the airstrip at Lukla. Within little more than 2 weeks, this is your chance to visit Everest Basecamp, trek to the exceptional viewpoint of Kala Patar and to experience the wonderful mountain scenery of the Khumbu. A memorable flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip at Lukla provides access to an alpine world where the air is crystal clear and colourful prayer flags flutter from the rooftops. Following the famous ‘Everest Trail‘, we trek to the prosperous village of Namche Bazaar and onwards, alongside the torrential Imja Khola, to the high valley below Everest. During the course of this excellent and relatively easy-paced trek, we visit many delightful Sherpa villages, including the stunningly located Thyangboche with its impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam. Providing outrageous mountain views and a wonderful insight into the way of life of the hardy Sherpas, this is the perfect trip for a first visit to Nepal and the Himalayas.
