Everest Region, Trekking Nepal

Everest Region, Trekking Nepal

Home to the Sherpa people and the world's highest mountain, the Everest region is the premier trekking destination in the world.

Not just scenically spectacular, with several mountains soaring above 8,000m, the Everest region is the native homeland of the wonderfully welcoming Sherpa people. Mount Everest, at 8,850,/29,035ft, is of course the star attraction and the trek to Everest Base Camp remains one of the great treks of the world. You can now choose whether to stay in traditional tea houses en route by taking the classic Everest Base Camp Trek or stay in top quality lodges on our Everest Base Camp in Style trek.

The beautiful trek to Gokyo Lakes and the High Passes beyond, provide opportunities to extend the trek to Everest Base Camp and to experience quieter trails and even more dramatic landscapes. Whilst the Long Trek to Everest Base Camp is perhaps the ultimate base camp trek, and follows in the footsteps of the original Everest pioneers.

Alternatively Luxury Lodges to Ama Dablam Base Camp trek takes you in part along the route to Everest, staying in the best trekking lodges available, but then diverts to reach the foot of one of the most beautiful mountains in the Himalaya.

In the autumn, the Mani Rimdu festival is one of the great cultural events of the region drawing Sherpas and trekkers to the stunningly situated Thyangboche Monastery at the heart of the Khumbu. You can attend the festival on our Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek.

The Khumbu is also the perfect place to try out the additional challenge of reaching the summit of a trekking peak such as Mera Peak.
