The classic route through the Sherpa heartland to the foot of the world's highest peaks on Earth

Namche Bazaar with Kongde HimalGokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp trek which is lodge-based trek follows in the footsteps of the great climbing parties. Trekking through Sherpa heartland past cultivated fields and small villages, we follow the Dudh Koshi River before the hard work begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar. Above the tree-line the scenery is stark but spectacular and fantastic views.


Everest Base Camp TrekThe incredible Buddhist Monastery at Tengboche is a photographer's paradise, set against the backdrop of Mt. Ama Dablam, Everest and other huge, snowcapped peaks. With time for acclimatization en route, our goal is Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu glacier as well as Icefall and the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5545m.) for a breathtaking view of Mt.
