Trip Highlights

  • One of the greatest treks in the world, a combination of awe-inspiring beauty, history, and rich Sherpa culture

  • Yaks and porters carry all of your heavy gear, so you can pack a light daypack and fully enjoy the experience.

  • Watch the sunrise over Mt. Everest from Kala Patar (18,192 ft.), arguably the best view in the Himalayas!

  • Stay in comfortable traditional lodges called "Tea-houses" each evening on the trek.

  • Tour Kathmandu and multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites. Learn about Buddhist and Hindu traditions.

Our group will 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.

We follow an ancient route through tiny villages, across high mountain passes, and through remote valleys. The views of the Himalayas are awe-inspiring as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region at 11,300 feet. We spend one night next to the Tengboche monastery (12,887 feet), which has spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse.

We’ll meet the friendly Nepali people and soak up the sights and sounds of Sherpa village life while staying in comfortable lodges called teahouses for our entire trek.

From there, it’s on to the stunning rocky outcrop of Kala Patar (18,192 feet) where we feast on awesome views of the south face of Everest. We’ll trek to Everest Base Camp and get a first-hand look at expeditions preparing for their summit attempts in this spectacular and historical setting.
