The classic Nepal trekking holiday and the complete Everest experience with all meals included
This lodge-based trek follows the legendary 'Everest Trail' from the airstrip at Lukla. Within little more than 2 weeks, this is your chance to visit Everest Basecamp, hike up to the exceptional viewpoint of Kala Patar at sunset and to experience the wonderful mountain scenery of the Khumbu. A memorable flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip at Lukla provides access to an alpine world where the air is crystal clear and colourful prayer flags flutter from the rooftops.
Following the famous 'Everest Trail', we trek to the prosperous village of Namche Bazaar where spend a day resting and acclimatising, before continuing our trek alongside the torrential Imja Khola to the high valley below Everest. During the course of this excellent and relatively easy-paced trek, we visit many delightful Sherpa villages, including the stunningly located Thyangboche with its famous monastery and impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam. Two nights at Dingboche, with an excellent acclimatisation walk to Chukkung are followed by 2 short days to Dughla and then Lobuche. This gives us the best possible preparation for our final trek from Lobuche to Everest Basecamp and means we only have to spend 1 night at Gorak Shep. Providing outrageous mountain views and a wonderful insight into the way of life of the hardy Sherpas, this is the perfect trip for a first visit to Nepal and the Himalayas.
