Everest Trekking with Buddhist Monasteries and Sherpa Culture brings you close to the majestic Himalayan peaks with breathtaking views including Mount Everest and takes you through Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries to see the culture of Khumbu valley.
Our trek begins with a thirty five minute flight to Tenzing-Hillary Lukla Airport at 9300ft in Khumbu valley. As you disembark the plane, a panorama of beautiful peaks unfolds before your eyes including: Mount Karyolung, Numbur, Khatang, and Nupla in the southwest to northwesterly direction. From Lukla, we trek along the Dudh Koshi River, a beautiful valley, sparsely inhabited area with patches of farmlands and forests. Our trek mainly travels through the Sagarmatha National Park in Khumbu Valley. Here are the best views of the mountain revered by many cultures and known as Everest worldwide, Sagarmantha in Nepali, and Chomolungma in Sherpa and Tibetan. Here the mountain forms a natural boundary in the northeast with Tibet. As we trek higher elevations, we can see Mount Kusum Kanguru, Kwangde (Nopla), Thamserku, Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Lhotse Shar, Pumori, the grand peak of Mount Everest (the highest summit on earth) and other beautiful sister mountains that harmonize the scenery of Khumbu. We will experience multiple views of the above mountains as we continue our journey to the peak of Kala Pathar (5545m) opposite of Everest.
