Starting From

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.


Starting at Lukla in the high Khumbu, your iconic Everest journey takes you first to Phakding, Monjo, then to Namche, the town at the end of the world. Next day, you will head to northwest towards Thame, the picturesque village with a magnificent 16th-century Nyingmapa gompa. Ascend to Deboche with an excursion to the untouched village of Phortse. A short helicopter ride gets you to the most scenic place on earth - Kala Patthar. You then heli back to Lukla, returning to Kathmandu the next day.


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.
