Trip Highlights

    • Sagarmatha National Park: A protected area in the Himalayas dominated by snow-capped mountains including Mount Everest (Sagarmatha), and encompasses glaciers, valleys, and trails. It is home to many species of rare animals and birds like the snow leopard, musk deer, and red panda. 

    • The Solu-Khumbu region is the homeland of the Sherpas, Buddhist people who migrated there from the Tibetan plateau around the 15th century. Get acquainted with the rich culture, tradition, and mountaineering history of the guardians of the Himalayas, the Sherpa people.

    • Lukla airport, also known as the Tenzing-Hillary Airport, is situated atop a cliff and drops off downwards at the end of the runway and is sure to be the most adventurous flight you’ve ever undertaken in your life.

    • Namche Bazaar, also known as the gateway to Mount Everest, is famous for being a trading point and a resting place for trekkers. Visible from this town are the mountains KongdeRi (6,187m) and Thamserku (6,623m). A fascinating Sherpa Museum sits atop Namche Bazaar. 

    • Get to know more about Buddhism, as you will find many monasteries in the region. One of the most famous being the Tengboche monastery. It is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community, and trekkers often visit to receive blessings for a successful journey from the Buddhist monks who reside there. You can visit the Khumjung monastery to take a look at the alleged Yeti’s scalp! 

    • The sacred Khumbila mountain (5,761m), roughly translated as "God of Khumbu", is one of the high Himalayan peaks that people are not permitted to climb due to its holy association. However, it can be enjoyed in the backdrop during this trek.

    • Kala Patthar, a notable landmark located above Gorakshep, provides spectacular views of Everest, Nuptse, and Changtse as well as glimpses of the northern flank and summit of Lhotse. Kala Patthar (5545m) is considered the highest altitude most will reach without a climbing permit, which must be obtained in Kathmandu, at the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

    • The Khumbu Glacier is located between Mount Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. With elevations of 4,900 m (16,100 ft) at its terminus to 7,600 m (24,900 ft) at its source, it is the world's highest glacier. The Ngozumpa glacier, sitting below the sixth highest mountain in the world Cho Oyu in Nepal, is considered the longest in the Himalayas, at a length of 36 km (22 mi)!

    • You will witness four of the six highest peaks in the world in the trail– Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 meters), Mt. Makalu (8,470 meters) and Cho Oyu (8,201 meters) and many other known peaks.
