Everest

Everest

Treks and Tours

There is a great deal more to the Everest region than the Everest Base Camp Trek, yet the lure of the world's highest mountain attracts thousands of experienced and inexperienced hikers every year. A complete absence of roads means that most people visiting the Everest region fly in and out of the mountain airstrip at Lukla.

  • Whether it's to glimpse Everest from afar, from a classic viewpoint like Kala Pattar or to scale a Himalayan peak there's so much more to this region than Everest itself. This is the land of the Sherpa, a hardy people whose friendly nature and cheerful smiles are the stuff of legend. The Sherpa and Everest are inseparable. Their tiny villages sparsely scattered throughout the Khumbu just seem to belong naturally in this high mountain landscape. There are iconic peaks such as Ama Dablam and Lhotse to complement Everest, small monasteries, glacial lakes, wildlife and all the comings and goings that both daily life and tourism brings adding to the flavour of Everest treks.

    Whilst many follow what has become know as the standard trek to Everest, there are alternative routes that deviate from the main trail. There are short Everest treks and nowadays there are even high standard luxury trekking lodges in the Everest region.

    However if hiking isn't your thing. Don't worry. You can still see Everest by plane or even by private helicopter. See our Unique Ideas page for more.

Everest The Hard Way

Very Challenging

For the serious, committed trekker only. A very challenging Everest trek across two high passes (Renjo La and Cho La) to reach EBC. A quieter route by the nature of the more strenuous trekking required. Tough, but exceptionally rewarding and very spectacular. Add the Kongma La too to make it even tougher!
