This 10-day Everest treks offers excellent views of Mt. Everest and the main peaks of the Khumbu without going to extreme altitudes. Starting with a flight to Lukla airstripwe trek in to Namche Bazaar, the principle town of the area and the Sherpa 'capital.' After a day of acclimatization we explore the traditional Sherpa villages of Kunde and Khumjung set amongst incredible mountain scenery. We then trek to Thyangboche - the site of Nepal's most sacred buddhist monastery. The views from this ridge above the Dudh Kosi river is possibly the most beautiful with Mt. Everest looming over the Lhotse Ridge and Ama Dablam towering above the monastery. We continue to Pangboche, the treks highest point, and then by way of, seldom visited, Phortse we swing back to Namche and Lukla to end the trek with a flight back to Kathmandu. This trek offers more of everything packed into 10 eventful days - more mountain views, more culture, more nature, more hospitality, more surprises, more, more.
