A hike through the Khumbu Valley, the valley which is home to the highest mountain in the world. On the trek we take the traditional route which goes up to the Everest Base camp. We fly into the valley at Lukla and via Namche hike upto Tengboche, home to the biggest monastery in the region which also offers a spectacualr view of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and other prominent peaks of the Khumbu. This short trek is the best way for you to explore the famed valley as well as view Everest without the rigours of going upto base camp over 16 days.
Any trip rated as a 'Beginner Trek' is an ideal first step into the world of trekking in the Himalaya. The trips are short - generally under a week - in moderate altitudes with gradual altitude gain. A typical day will involve 4-5hrs of hiking on mountainous trails with an odd day over 6hrs. Most beginner treks in the Indian Himalaya are camping trips where overnight accommodation will be in tents. You will be accompanied by our camping and kitchen staff throughout the trip. In Nepal, all our stay and accommodation on the trail will be in tea-houses.
This trek suits individuals looking for their maiden trek in the Himalayas or families which want to introduce their young ones to trekking.
