Our exclusive Everest base camp trek itinerary is different from many others in that it also includes some remote trails along the far side of the Khumbu valley.

We follow an ancient base camp trekking route that takes us through Sherpa farm villages, Mani stones and monasteries, across the valley through the high mountains. The views grow even more spectacular as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region. Then we will spend a night in the western valley of Thame, a popular village with famous World record climbers, before continuing up via the hidden villages of Khunde and Khumjung. The trail then leads to Thyangboche monastery, where you will be rewarded with spectacular 360 degree views of Mount Ama Dablam, Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Thamserku, Mount Kwangde, Mount Tawache, Mount Khumbila, and Mount Kwandge. Following this we continue through the Imaj valley on up to Dingboche and finally the outstanding view point of Kalapathar and Mount Everest Base Camp before returning to Lukla via Phortse village.
The Mount Everest trekking region is sited in Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site listed by UNESCO.

Pine, Juniper and Birch trees are common in the region as well as beautiful rhododendron flowers that can be seen in bloom in spring. Monasteries are found at many places on the route, and evidence of Buddhism can be seen all along the way – from the chortens and mani stones to the friendly monks and the fluttering prayer flags which represent the eternal peace of the holy Himalayas. The physical and spiritual power of this mountain region will stay with you for the rest of your life.
