To be in the foothills of the tallest Mountains on the earth and home to the brave sherpas is every traveler's dream. This short trek will fulfil that dream by taking you to the foothill of the most iconic and awe-inspiring mountains in the world: The Mount Everest, and other towering 8000ers albeit an easier way.
The Everest region itself boasts 4 of the 6 highest mountains in the world: Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt.Makalu, and Cho-Oyu. The breathtaking mountain panoramas, the Gompas, Shrines and Monasteries on the way ,the hospitality and culture of the mountain people will surely be etched in your memory for a very long time.
Your journey to the top of the world begins after a day tour in Kathmandu visiting cultural landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage sites before the spectacular flight to Lukla. The trail from Lukla gradually leads you up from the sparkling waters of the Dudh Khosi River, through the heart of Sherpa country to the dramatic high mountain scenery beyond. Following in the footsteps of the legendary mountaineers you will enter the Khumbu & Sagarmatha National Park region that will eventually lead you to the gateway to the Himalaya, Namche Bazaar. A short trek from Namche Bazaar will take you to Syanboche from where you will be able to have a 360-degree panoramic view of the tallest mountains in the world including Mt. Everest. Soak yourself in the sheer beauty and majesticity of the mountains.
After the sensational mountain views and an insight into the lives of mountain hardy Sherpa people we will return at our leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for your return flight to Kathmandu.
