Overview

This is an outstanding trek, which passes the high valleys of the Khumbu region by exploring villages and monasteries and observing the incredible hospitality of the Sherpa people. Flying from Kathmandu to Tenzing Norgy Sherpa Sir Edmund Hillary Airport Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley up to the Sherpa capital of Namche bazzar. We have time here to acclimatise, before following the quiet trail to Thame village in the Bhote Koshi valley.

We visit the ancient cliff-hugging Buddhist monastery. Descending to Khumjung, we are treated to incredible views of Kantega and Thamserku and the Nuptse-Lhotse wall with Mt Everest rearing above.

At Khumjung, we camp below Khumbila Peak , home of the patron God of the Khumbu, before making our way towards Phortse, Pangboche and Thyangboche. The views along the trail throughout are tremendous, with snow-capped mountains on all sides, deep forested river valleys and small villages and their fields clinging to impossible looking slopes.

Our highest point will be Pangboche (3908m) and its charming and unspoiled monastery. After Pangboche we shall return to Lukla via Thyangboche and Namche. A flight back to Kathmandu will conclude this wondrously divine trek. The best time for doing this trip is March to May and September to December.
