Trip Overview

Welcome to Nepal – the land of the Himalayas. Of the 1310 peaks above 6,000 meters in Nepal, 238 are open to climbing – Two of them are Lobuche and Mt. Amadablum. The trail traverses through the route to Everest Base Camp – where climbers begin their arduous journey to the top of the world.

The journey to the summit of this peak starts with the class and dramatic flight to Lukla. From here we follow the footsteps of the legends Tenzing Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary to Everest Base Camp. We are now in the land of the famous climbing people, Sherpas and will be passing through pine forest, Sherpa villages, monasteries, gushing rivers fed by the Himalayan glaciers, crossing hanging bridges to arrive at the bustling Sherpa ‘capital’ Namche Bazaar. From here we head towards the famous Thyangboche monastery which has a backdrop of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse and Mt.Amadablum. Mani walls, chortens and fluttering prayer flags with views of magnificent Himalayas. From here we continue our ascend crossing the Imja Khola to arrive at Pheriche and  steady ascent further following glacial moraines to Lobuche and then to our lodge at Gorak Shep.
