Embrace remote Sherpa life on this classic trek to Everest, culminating with a helicopter tour that takes you right up to the face of Mother Goddess Sagamartha—Everest herself.

Overview

Flying above the altitude of 2,860 M, the popular trek begins from Lukla. The allure of Everest Base Camp pulls people from all over the world, making it a must-see destination at least once in a lifetime. From Lukla airport, the path winds through Sherpa villages, fir and rhododendron forests, and over high suspension bridges. Namche Bazaar, a lively market, attracts traders from nearby villages and even Tibet. The trek offers stunning views of Island Peak, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam, creating a breathtaking panorama. The stunning view of Mount Everest from Kala Patthar is a popular trekking spot. Staying in cozy mountain tea houses lets us relax and enjoy the peaceful mountain breezes. The village of Khumjung, home to the school founded by Sir Edmund Hillary, stands as a significant hub for education in the region.

Route

It’s hard to choose the most powerful part of this ultimate bucket-list adventure, a classic trek to the lap of Everest: the week of hiking the high Himalayas, the rich taste of life among the Sherpa, the audience with the lama incarnate in the world’s remotest monastery, the extraordinary heli ride into Everest Base Camp amid an endless expanse of peaks, or simply staring into the face of Everest. You get it all on the Everest Sherpa Trail. And with our guides, you don’t even need to be trek-experienced to take this trip.
