This is one of Nepal’s most famous treks, set amongst breath-taking high mountain scenery. The Everest region is certainly the world’s most glaring high mountain spot. Magnificent landscapes, imposing and prestigious peaks, tapering ridges and colorful villages contribute to turning this trek into an unforgettable experience. The itinerary leads through the high Khumbu Mountains – Sherpa country – before arriving at the foot of Everest. The Kala Pattar (5554m) ascent is one of the highlights of this trek and boasts an absolutely stunning summit panorama of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse & the dark Everest pyramid with the world’s highest mountain (8848 m).
