Travel to Nepal and head to the Himalayan hills to get the full picture of Everest. Fly to Lukla then enjoy a four-day trek, staying in teahouses in the village of Phakding, the market town of Namche Bazaar and the small settlement of Monjo. Along the way, cross fast flowing rivers, climb to the highest hotel in the world and take in close up views of the mountain and the surrounding Himalayas.
In case of weather conditions leading to cancellations or delays in flights, this trip will operate on an alternate itinerary. Please see Day 1 of the itinerary for more details.
- This is a great introduction to Everest: a shorter trek that still allows for stunning views of the world's highest mountain.
- The flight into Lukla provides unparalleled views of the Himalaya and, if you're lucky, you may just spot Everest.
- Stay in remote, authentic tea houses. The accommodation may be spartan, but the scenery is beautiful and the food delicious.
- Enjoy walking along the famous route to Everest Base Camp and spend a night at altitude in Namche Bazaar (3440 metres).
