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.

The river stays with us but the landscape is dominated by pure pine groves. We climb for a short while to rise above the gorge and through the entrance to the Khumbu National Park. The trail is good and leads to a confluence of rivers — one coming down from Thame and the other from Khumbu. The last leg of the trail takes us over a breathtaking suspension bridge, from where on we climb for about 90 minutes to Namche on a wide switchback trail. Overnight at lodge.
We hike up to the village of Khumjung, which offers views of Everest. The village has sizable amount of sherpas who contribute to climbing expeditions to peaks above 8000m. You also get to see the traditional sherpa culture on the visit. We hike back to Namche for the night or head to Khangjuma if time permits to shorten out next day. Overnight at Lodge.
The trail is easy, though you'll feel the effects of altitude on this five-hour jaunt — but that is if you find the time while looking at the other-worldly scenery that surrounds you. Beyond it we climb to Thyangboche, one of Nepal’s finest monasteries, along a ridge. We stay here to savour views of the Everest/Lhotse massif and Ama Dablam. Overnight at lodge.
We descend to cross the Dudh Kosi river and then have a steep ascent towards Namche which eases off as we get closer to the village. We have a steep downhill walk to Monja where we call for the day. Overnight at lodge.
From Monjo the trail descends the valley which becomes more enclosed as we pass the villages of Phakding and Chopling, to reach Chaurikharka. Here we begin the final climb of the trip - the sting in the tail - with a 45 minute steady ascent up to the airstrip at Lukla. Overnight at lodge.
We take the flight to Kathmandu, where we check in at our hotel. The rest of the day is free for sightseeing or shopping in the bazaar. Overnight at hotel.
Our Services end after breakfast.

What to expect


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.
