Everest In Style
“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.
In the afternoon, we visit the traditional and unique city of Bhaktapur (UNESCO) heritage site.
After we are set and porters have been assigned the luggage, we follow the trail towards the north-east. We cross a suspension bridge to leave Lukla behind. Cross small picturesque villages of Chaunrikharka and Ghat and descend to reach Phakding just by the river.
Head to the check post to clear our permits and enter Sagarmatha National Park. A busy trail with several interests – small villages, pine forests. After crossing the river again, a steady climb to reach Namche Bazaar – halfway through the climb catch your first glimpse of the mighty three – Everest (8848m), Mt. Nuptse (7879m), and Lhotse (8383m).
Reach Namche Bazaar – a bustling little prosperous town in the Khumbu region surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks.
We reach Everest View Hotel which features unspoiled views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse amongst other Himalayan peaks.Head towards towards Khumjung– the largest Sherpa village in Khumbu.
Take some time to fully take in the spectacular view ahead of us before heading back down on the helicopter to Lukla (refule) and back to Kathmandu.
Watch the Himalayas pass by as you relive the memories spent only days ago in the heart of the mountains. Relish on the achievement of a lifetime experience.
