Everest Region

The trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp continues to be one of our most rewarding journeys. You will have a day to explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the remote mountain town of Lukla (9,350 feet) to begin our trek into the Khumbu region of the Himalayas. The views of the Himalayan mountains from Lukla on a clear day are breathtaking. We follow an ancient route that will take us through tiny villages, across high mountain passes, and through remote valleys, villages, and monasteries. The views grow even more spectacular as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region at 11,300 feet. We will spend a night next to the Thyangboche monastery (12,887 feet), where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse. A non-technical climb of Kala Pattar (18,450 feet) highlights the truly spectacular panorama of Sagamartha (Mt. Everest), the Mother Goddess of the World (29,030 feet), and Lhotse (27,560 feet). Spending the better part of two days at Everest Base Camp will give us plenty of time for exploring the base of the tallest mountain in the world! The return trek continues to delight adventurous souls with more spectacular mountain views, lush forested valleys, and opportunities to learn about the Nepalese religion and culture. Nepal is a country of friendly people, beautiful scenery, and a great variety of cultural traditions. This journey into the world’s most impressive mountain range will create lasting memories and instill a sense of accomplishment. This blend of outdoor adventure and cultural exploration is a great way to experience the Himalayan mountains
