This easy Nepal trekking holiday, in the foothills of Mount Everest, begins with the short flight to Lukla, gateway to the Khumbu. Here, accompanied by our cheerful Sherpa team, we start our trek into a region of high valleys and remote settlements, overshadowed by some of the world's greatest peak. During 8 days of trekking, we can experience the unrivalled mountain scenery of the Khumbu, including the classic view of Mount Everest and Ama Dablam from Thyangboche Monastery. Visiting a succession of Sherpa villages, including the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, the popular myth of 'Shangri La' will seem all-too-real. On our return to Kathmandu, we have a free daya and a city tour, with the option of taking an early morning 'Everest Flight' for a dramatic finale. Suitable for any weekend hillwalker, this short trek offers an excellent introduction to the delights of trekking in the Himalayas, including those all-important views of Mount Everest.
Is this holiday for you?
Generally, the trekking conditions on this Nepal holiday are easy, following good paths throughout. Additionally, as the Khumbu is Nepal's most popular trekking destination, the area is well supplied with teashops and lodges and the trails between these are well used and present easy walking conditions. This is part of the classic walk-in of expeditions to Everest. This ascent presents no real difficulty and should be within the capabilities of any reasonably fit person, though it should be noted that trekking at altitudes above 3000 metres requires a slower pace than you may be used to.
