Nepal, Khumbu Valley region

Type of trek
Quite large path, no exposure, strenuous

We like
  • All the features of a trek in Nepal: suspended foot-bridges, a Buddhist monastery and Everest, the highest place on the planet earth
  • The evenings in lodges where you will huddle around the communal fire with other trekkers and climbers
  • Trekking and sharing an acclimatization climb with our Everest Expedition team (April) or our Ama Dablam Expedition team (November)
  • Dal Bhat, the traditional Nepalese meal, with lentil soup and steamed rice
