Mt Everest, earth’s highest pinnacle is known as “Chomolungma” in Sherpa and Tibetan languages, meaning “Mother Goddess”. To climb Mt Everest is a dream for the many daring climbers. We won’t be climbing the mountain on this trip but you will experience all that is involved in the lead-up to a climb.
This is regarded as a moderate plus graded trek which allows you a once in a life time experience to visit not only Everest Base Camp but to also climb Kalapattar for awe inspiring views of Mt Everest. A good level of fitness is required as the walking is strenuous at times in high altitude. The views of the mountains on this trek are arguably one of the best in Nepal. Starting at Lukla you will follow along the Dudh Koshi Valley up to Namche Bazaar. The trek passes below snowy peaks and through friendly Sherpa villages. Here you are surrounded by snowy peaks all times: Chomolungma 8848m, Lhotse 8511m, Nuptse 7879m, Makalu 8481, Amadablam 6856m, Thamserku, Taboche, Cholatse, and many more. You will be immersed in the stark beauty of these towering mountains that will take your breath away.
