Highlights of the Himalayas

Famous for its staggering peaks and breathtaking views, a highlight of the Himalayas that less spoken about is the beautiful Himalayan villages that are found nestled in the valleys and perched on steep hillsides. These villages offer a glimpse into a way of life deeply connected with the rugged landscapes that surround them and are often characterized by traditional stone and wood architecture, with prayer flags fluttering in the mountain breeze. The warmth and hospitality of the Himalayan villagers, who rely on farming, herding, and trade, create an enriching cultural experience for visitors seeking to explore this remote and timeless corner of the world.

What to do in the Himalayas

Everest Base Camp trek

Explore the world’s tallest and most famous mountain while discovering some of the most magnificent scenery and breathtaking vistas seen on Earth. Accessed through the mountain airstrip at Lukla, there are several classic KE holidays that will take you up to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall.

Trek the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary

As you journey beyond the terraced fields and forests of the foothills, beneath the imposing presence of the 'Fishtail' Mountain, and eventually arrive at Annapurna Base Camp, you'll be enveloped by the majestic snowy summits of some of the planet's loftiest peaks. The Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Sanctuary treks were amongst the first of the great Nepalese treks to come to the attention of adventure travellers and KE first ran versions of these classics in the late 1980's. Since that time, a steady increase in the numbers of trekkers (just as in the Everest region) has led to the setting up of lodges on these and other popular Annapurna trails.
