Mount Everest trek
starts from Kathmandu after a short 35 minutes flight to the Tenzing-Hilary airport at Lukla (2642m). After the scenic mountain flight, the trek start through Sherpa villages and farmlands gradually rises to Namche Bazaar (3440m.) where few nights spend for acclimatization (to be familiar with altitude). During the rest days, we explore the large Sherpa village at Khumjung and experience their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. The Prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls and Monasteries justify to the importance of Buddhism in their lives throughout the wilderness.

Everest Base Camp trek beyond Namche continues with several ups and downs and the trail continues to higher altitude where the night-time temperatures down to zero. You will get opportunity to explore the alpine vegetation. Finally, the one way trekking destination ends at the base camp of Everest or climbing the Kalapathar hill.
