With its fantastic mountain landscapes and colourful mix of religions and cultures, Nepal makes the perfect destination for a school group adventure. This itinerary offers a short trek through the heartland of the Sherpas to the famous Tyangboche monastery. After a memorable flight to Lukla in the Khumbu region, this superb school adventure begins by trekking through several Sherpa villages to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar. We spend a day in this famous place in mountaineering history and visit the Sherpa Museum of Culture and Everest Exhibition  before trekking through the villages of Kunde and Kumjung where we visit the Hillary School. The final part of the trek takes us to the famous ridge-top monastery of Thyangboche where many climbing expeditions come to receive the lama's blessing for their climb. The views from here of the dominating Ama Dablam and of Everest itself are legendary. This popular schools itinerary which also allows time for community project work in the Kathmandu area, offers the opportunity to trek in the Everest region but without the extremes of altitude necessary from a visit to Base Camp and staying in comfortable lodges run by the local Sherpa people. This tried and tested KE Schools itinerary can be adjusted to better fit the needs of your group - please call and speak to a KE School Groups Coordinator or email schools@keadventure.com

Is this holiday for you?

Generally, the trekking conditions on this trip are straightforward following good paths throughout. Additionally, as the Khumbu is Nepal's most popular trekking destination, the area is well supplied with tea shops, lodges and medical facilities. The trails are well used and present easy walking conditions. This trip includes only a short trek, with relatively short trekking days, and our route does not reach extreme altitudes. We allow two days to reach Namche Bazaar from Lukla and have allowed a rest day on arrival at Namche Bazaar. Flying into Lukla we anticipate that some people will feel the altitude but our easy-paced itinerary will allow them to acclimatise quickly. This is an excellent choice for a first trek to the Nepal Himalaya. We recommend a minimum age of 15 years
