What makes Everest Region Trekking so special?
To go on trek in Everest still tops the wishlist of many keen trekkers, particularly those wanting to trek to Everest Base Camp and stand at the foot of the world’s highest mountain. This iconic trek retains its allure and, during the main spring and autumn seasons, the trails to Everest are busy with trekkers, climbers and adventurers from around the globe.
Most trekkers will stay in traditional tea houses en route to Everest, offering Sherpa hospitality, wholesome food and a comfy bed for the night, but there is now the option to trek to Everest Base Camp in style, staying in more luxurious trekking lodges and high quality tea houses with en suite rooms, running hot water and high standards of service. Whichever accommodation you choose, this trek rightly remains one of the great treks of the world taking you through a variety of beautiful and dramatic mountain scenery, past the atmospheric Thyangboche Monastery and on to the most famous Base Camp in the world.
Aside from the trek to Base Camp, there are several other Everest treks you can consider. The trek to Gokyo Lakes does initially follow the same route to Everest Base Camp but then goes beyond to the beautiful Gokyo Lakes. Trek further still and you cross the Three High Passes of Everest for a real sense of remoteness. If you have less time for your Everest holiday then consider a shorter trek to Thyangboche Monastery or to Ama Dablam Base Camp – staying in luxury lodges and still enjoying stunning scenery and views but not going as far or as high. Several of these treks to Everest and beyond are timed to coincide with the magical Mani Rimdu Festival in the autumn - a spectacular and colourful celebration of Tibetan Buddhism.
For those with a real taste of adventure and a head for heights than a trekking peak such as Mera Peak or Island Peak offers a superb, high altitude challenge.
The sheer scale, majesty and drama of the mountain scenery, together with the wonderful hospitality of the Sherpa people, still makes Everest the premiere destination for trekking in Nepal.
