Everest to Namche Bazaar Trek

Quick Details

Lukla to Namche Bazaar trek

The Namche Bazaar trek is the perfect option for trekkers who do not have the time to trek to the Everest base camp but still want to appreciate some of the beautiful elements of Khumbu and experience some of the unique cultures deep within the Himalayas.

We start our adventure by flying into Lukla in the Khumbu region. We then trek up to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital of the world, and a unique trading point where both Tibetan and Nepalese people sell their wares.

You spend an extra day in Namche, before walking up to Khumjung village where the infamous “Yeti Scalp” is kept in a Monastery and Kunde village for spectacular views of the Himalayas including Everest.

The instant Everest Trek to Namche combines a flight to Lukla airport and then a couple of days of the walk to Namche and Tengboche to view Mount Everest is all you need to see Mt. Everest in a rush.

Note – Flight to Lukla and back can be delayed or canceled due to poor visibility. We ask you to have a buffer days of few days in case your flight to Lukla is affected.
