Camping Trek to Lower Everest Region Cultural Adventure Tour

Key Information

Per Person Min 4 persons
Per Person Min 2 persons

Low altitude trek

We will visit the lower mountainous areas of the Khumbu district on this itinerary but very different from the famous trek to Everest base camp trail. Our founder, Raj Tamang, visited this region in 2016 to bring some money sent over by our client to help rebuild a village school, fund local women’s initiatives, etc.

The village is inhabited by Rai ethnic groups who are incredibly humble and hospitable. You will get a sense of being in an authentic Nepalese village. The lifestyle in the communities is pretty shielded from the influences of tourism. The youths from this region form the backbone of the trekking and expedition industry along the Everest trail.

This trek is ideal for those who want to see Nepal and stay in very basic lodges or people’s homes, eating mostly local food consisting of rice, lentil soup, vegetables, occasional meat or instant noodle soup, boiled potatoes, etc.

However, we can send some supplies with our guide/trekking chef, who can make a few food variations even in these basic conditions. This trek is also ideal because it is relatively low altitude, not 2,500 meters above sea level. We want to promote this area to help the poor people of this region and lift their livelihood.

Here is a tentative itinerary; please note that the trekking hours are just a guideline for people who walk at a relaxed pace with plenty of stops to take photos and appreciate the people’s views.

Food and nutrition on the trek

We are pioneers in culinary trekking in the Himalayas. We provide a varied, interesting menu on treks throughout the Himalayas. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals can be catered for upon request, and other special diets can be accommodated with advance notice.

Trekking is not only fun, but it is beneficial for you. It helps in detoxifying the body while also nourishing the soul. Although to provide a better experience, we also tailor our meals to include superfoods as part of the ingredients to keep you fit and healthy while also assisting in acclimatization to high altitudes. The combination of hiking in the pristine mountain air and healthy food makes trekking with us a complete gastronome adventure. Read More on Food and nutrition on our treks.
