Trek through the villages of Legendary Sherpas of the Everest region

Your trek is curated to provide a profoundly enriching experience, focusing on an in-depth understanding of the Sherpa culture, the communities you’ll visit, and the notable personalities residing in these villages. Our dedicated team is committed to imparting comprehensive knowledge about the Sherpa people, their traditions, and the unique aspects of each village you’ll encounter along this journey.

In addition to the cultural immersion, we prioritise your well-being by offering the healthiest and most diverse meals amidst the Himalayas. Savouring these nourishing meals not only sustains your energy for the trek but also ensures you have the vitality to relish every moment of your vacation.

The aim is to provide you with a holistic experience where every aspect of your journey, from cultural exploration to culinary delights, contributes to a fulfilling and memorable adventure in the lap of the Himalayas. Our team’s dedication is to make your trek a vacation and a transformative and enlightening journey that stays with you long after you’ve left the mountains.

Your trek starts with a picturesque flight to Lukla, an entryway to the Khumbu region. Our carefully designed route ensures an exploration of renowned and less-travelled trails in the Everest region. We’ve handpicked lodges owned by captivating individuals, each with stories that captivate your imagination. Opting for less crowded lodges guarantees a more intimate and authentic experience.

Throughout your journey, you’ll lodge in locally run tea houses, immersing yourself in the warmth of villages like Phakding and Namche Bazaar—the vibrant heart of Sherpa culture. Namche Bazaar boasts a lively ambience, offering amenities such as cafes, restaurants, shops catering to trekkers, bars, and laundry services.

One of the highlights of this trek is encounters with Sherpas who hold world records or have broken records, affording you the unique opportunity to stay and dine at their homes. A spiritual pinnacle awaits at the Tengboche Monastery, providing a breathtaking panorama of Mount Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and the majestic Mount Everest. While the monastery has weathered natural calamities, the passing of Lama Ngawang Tenzing Jangpo Rimpoche in 2020 marked a poignant moment in its history.

As you traverse these landscapes, you’ll encounter diverse wildlife and migratory birds, thriving since the establishment of the Sagarmatha National Park. Being Nepal’s inaugural national park inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, it has fostered the resurgence of wildlife populations, enriching your trek with glimpses of nature’s beauty and biodiversity.

This journey promises adventure and a tapestry of cultural immersion, spiritual resonance, and encounters with the wonders of nature, ensuring every step is adorned with unforgettable experiences.

The trek will begin after a short, scenic flight to Lukla in the Khumbu region. This trek has been designed to take you through the Everest region’s famous and less busy trails. We have selected lodges owned by exciting characters with stories that enchant you. Likewise, we have picked less active lodges.

Staying in locally run tea houses along the way, you walk to the villages of Phakding and Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital of the World. Namche Bazaar is a bustling little town with numerous cafes, restaurants, shops with essentials for trekkers, bars, and laundry services.

This trek’s numerous highlights are visiting villages home to World record-setting/breaking Sherpas. You will even stay and dine at the homes of two of these famous Sherpas. One of the spiritual highlights is the Tengboche monastery, which offers an incredible panorama of Mount Nuptse 7901 meters, Lhotse 8501 meters, Ama Dablam 6812 meters, and Mount Everest! This monastery was first built in 1916 and has been rebuilt twice. It was damaged by the 1923 earthquake and a fire in 1989. The current building was rebuilt after the fire. The renowned Abbot of the monastery, Lama Ngawang Tenzing Jangpo Rimpoche, passed away quietly on the 9th of October 2020.

You will encounter various wildlife and birds that are both residents and migratory. The wildlife population has increased since the Sagarmatha National Park was established in 1976, and it was Nepal’s first national park to be inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1979.

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