The Everest region is understandably one of the world’s most popular and spectacular hiking destinations. Our Mount Everest and Ama Dablam Base Camp Lodge Trek trip begins with a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to the 9,000-foot airstrip at the mountain village of Lukla. We then follow the traditional expedition route to the Sherpa capital of the Khumbu, the village of Namche Bazaar and onwards, alongside the raging Imja Khola River to the high valley below Mount Everest. En route to the world’s highest peak, we will visit many picturesque Sherpa villages. Tengboche, the home of Nepal’s most famous monastery, is situated beneath the impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam. We will also make the spectacular day hike to Ama Dablam Base Camp from Pangboche. Our journey to Everest Base Camp takes us close up beneath the spectacular “Khumbu Icefall” which leads up to the South Col and was the route taken on the first ascent of Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953. We have also included the option of hiking to the top of the viewpoint peak of Kala Pattar (18,188 feet), which will afford our hard effort with extraordinary views of Nuptse, Everest, Lhotse and Pumori.
