For adventure lovers, Mount Everest has always been the epitome of adventure. Everest lies in the Khumbu region in Solukhumbu district, the northern region of Nepal. In a category of it’s own, Mount Everest stands at an astonishing 8,848 m, boasting the title of highest mountain of the world. It holds a certain allure, and conquering Everest for mountaineers is perhaps the highest achievement possible, as they have to battle mother nature and overcome personal fears. Those who cannot make the trek to the peak can still have an astonishing view of the mountain peak from its base camp, sitting at 5,320 m. The base came rises above the Khumbu icefall, and offers 360 degree views of several peaks, including Mt. Pumori, South Col, Mount Ama Dablam, and Lhotse peak.
We will pick you up from the airport, and transfer you to your hotel in Kathmandu. The next morning, we will board a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, where the trek will start. Over the next two weeks, while on this teahouse trek, you will pass through a variety of terrains and be exposed to unforgettable views of Mount Everest and other beautiful peaks within the Himalayan range. We will immerse ourselves in the Nepalese and Tibetan culture, visit Buddhist monasteries, and follow along the paths of the Sherpas, learning about their way of life. We will take advantage of our acclimatization days by exploring the Namache Bazaar, and enjoy breathtaking views while at Dingbouche. However, the biggest highlight of all is without a doubt the view of Mount Everest from the base camp, and being able to say, “You did it.”
