Kathmandu & Phakding
After exploring the unique old city of Kathmandu, we fly to Lukla, an experience in itself, and enter the world of the Sherpas..
Dudh Kosi (River of Milk), Namche Bazaar
We walk alongside the Dudh Kosi up to memorable villages like Namche, the Sherpa capital. Visit holy Thyangboche Monastery, which sits on a high meadow in the lee of AmaDablam.
Journey to Kalapathar or Base Camp
The trail is ever upward, skirting formidable glaciers and neat Sherpa villages. The temperature drops and we are in a frozen world of stone houses, iced rivers and stunning beauty. On returning to Lukla after your mountain high, bid farewell to your gracious Sherpa hosts and set off on the spectacular flight back to Kathmandu. There is time to reflect on your adventure and explore this exotic city for yourself.
