Everest In Style

Trip Overview

 “Because it’s there”…….Late Sir George Mallory

For many people trekking in the Himalayas can be very strenuous because of the high altitude. Other reasons may be time constraints. This does not mean that you cannot see the Himalayas, the Sherpa culture, the fluttering prayer flags, mani’s and prayer stone walls at close range.   This ‘A Journey to the Everest Region’ trek would be ideal for such visitors giving us a chance to relish trekking in the amazing Himalayan trails while also exploring the wide range of spectacular scenery combined with monasteries and rich local traditions of the Sherpas.

One of the top trekking destinations of the world, this trek reveals you mesmerizing landscapes and untouched vistas of the Khumbu Valley, Sagarmatha National Park and the Himalayas. Traverse your way through the land of the Sherpas – the fierce climbers and make your way to Namche Bazaar, take in the panoramic views of the Himalayas – Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Cho Oyu, to name a few of the treats that lay en route. This is one of the best ways to see the mighty Himalayas up close in a short period of time.

Our return journey we take the helicopter to Everest Base Camp (fly over), land at Kala Pathar (5545 m) for panoramic views of the Himalayas and back to Kathmandu via Lukla.
