EVEREST BASE CAMP WITH KALA PATAR
The classic trek, through the heartland of the sherpas, to the base camp of Mount Everest.
EVEREST BASE CAMP WITH KALA PATAR
THYANGBOCHE MONASTERY, KATHMANDU, LUKLA, NAMCHE BAZAAR, MOUNT EVEREST
18 Days SEP-MAY

Thyangboche must be one of the most beautiful places in the world. The height is well over 12,000 feet. The Monastery buildings stand upon a knoll at the end of a big spur, which is flung out across the direct axis of the Imja river. Surrounded by satellite dwellings, all quaintly constructed and oddly medieval in appearance, it provides a grandstand beyond comparison for the finest mountain scenery that I have ever seen, whether in the Himalaya or elsewhere.

Itinerary

Arrive in Kathmandu where you are met at the airport and transferred to your hotel.

Kathmandu sightseeing. (B)

You take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. After meeting with your porters and crew you follow the Dudh Kosi Valley through pine forest to The Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar. Here you experience the all
encompassing mountain views and your first views of Everest. From Namche you discover the magnificent Thyangboche Monastery and ascend through the villages of Pangboche and above the tree line to Dingboche all through the journey Everest looms high above. As you ascend the days becoming an exciting challenge as you ascend through the ‘thin air’ to Lobuje, Gorak Shep and onto Everest Base Camp.
This trek is demanding at times but the rewards of reaching ‘base camp’ and ascending Kala Patar for a
breathtaking 360-degree panorama of Mount Everest and numerous other high altitude peaks are more than worth the effort. You return to Lobuje and descend to Pheriche for the downhill journey back to the airstrip at Lukla.

An early start to the morning with a flight back to Kathmandu.

Your trip ends in Kathmandu in the morning. (B)
