10-day trek offers excellent views of Mt.
Everest and the main peaks of the Khumbu
without going to extreme altitudes. Starting
with a flight to Lukla airstripwe trek in
to Namche Bazaar, the principle town of
the area and the Sherpa 'capital.' After
a day of acclimatization we explore the
traditional Sherpa villages of Kunde and
Khumjung set amongst incredible mountain
scenery. We then trek to Thyangboche - the
site of Nepal's most sacred buddhist monastery.
The views from this ridge above the Dudh
Kosi river is possibly the most beautiful
with Mt. Everest looming over the Lhotse
Ridge and Ama Dablam towering above the
monastery. We continue to Pangboche, the
treks highest point, and then by way of,
seldom visited, Phortse we swing back to
Namche and Lukla to end the trek with a
flight back to Kathmandu. This trek offers
more of everything packed into 10 eventful
days - more mountain views, more culture,
more nature, more hospitality, more surprises,
to difficult trekking and lodging from 2,805m
(9,200ft) to 3,985m (13,070ft) with possible
optional hikes up to 4,500+m (15,00ft).
Accommodation in comfortable lodges run
by Sherpa families. The trek starts with
a flight from Kathmandu and includes all
meals, services of experienced Sherpa trek
guide and porters to carry luggage. Clients
