You fly to Kathmandu for a night in this fabulous city, and your holiday begins with a guided Tour exploring the vibrant capital of Nepal, before you fly high into the Himalaya to the mountain airstrip at Lukla on a breathtaking exciting flight on a twin otter plane. Here you begin your trek in the heart of Sherpa Country, The Khumbu.
We call this holiday trekking and exploring - for not only do you walk the best of a fantastic region, but you get to explore its culture, history, unique places and attractions. The best of both worlds.
This trek follows good trails deep into the mountains of the Khumbu region, much of it in the Everest National Park.. We are now in Buddhist Sherpa country where you will see colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries along the way. The trail between lodges takes you through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of the Khumbu and the Everest region. This is a moderate walk and would be an ideal choice for the first time trekker wanting to maintain home comforts.
The Everest region
The Everest region is the most famous area in Nepal and perhaps the entire Himalaya, as it is the centre for the major mountaineering expeditions. Here Himalayan giants from Everest to Ama Dablam tower above the Khumbu Valley, making this valley one of the world’s most magical and inspiring places to visit and trek.
Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park covers the area known as Khumbu and is situated in the north eastern region of Nepal. It is spectacular mountainous country all above 3000 metres in altitude. Most of the park is steep and rugged with paths that traverse and wind round the hillsides, the terrain broken by deep gorges and glacial valleys, while the major valleys have some relatively level areas, which are used for growing crops and grazing. The inhabitants of the Khumbu are Sherpas, originally Tibetan migrants, arriving some four to five hundred years ago. Very little had influenced the region until 1950 when the first mountaineering expeditions arrived to conquer the world’s highest mountain.
