The life of mountain dwellers is vastly different from one we lead in the city and is worth having a look at. To look into the heart of the villages of these people we offer an exceptional 8 days trek featuring a wide range of spectacular scenery combined with unique cultural encounters with the Sherpa people who inhabit these high altitude regions.
The journey begins in the medieval city of Kathmandu, from where a short flight to the beautiful village of Lukla (2800m) will drop us to the heart of the Solu Khumbu region. The trek continues through the lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, with pine forests, rhododendron flowers and an abundance of wildlife, to Namche Bazaar (3440m). A day of rest is necessary in Namche in order to get acclimatized to higher altitudes. The following days trekking will bring us to the village of Tengboche (3930m), home to the highest Buddhist monastery in the world (4100m) and also reputed by photographers as one of the best places to capture the awesome beauty of Mt. Everest (8848m) and its neighboring peaks.
The concluding days of this adventure will be spent in the delightful and scenic villages of Khunde (3500m) and Khumjung, where we will have the opportunity to interact with the legendary Sherpa people and participate in their astonishing traditional lifestyle. Back down to Lukla from where we will take a short flight back to Kathmandu, enjoying the last views of the awe-inspiring Himalayan range and its people.

The Trekking Group
For the Everest View Trek, there will be one leader, assistant leader (4 trekkers:1 assistant guide) and Sherpa porters for luggage carrying (2 trekkers:1 porter). This arrangement ensures that any body in the group is sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. Himalayan Glacier can run the Everest Base Camp trek for group of any size. But generally it will be better to have a maximum of twelve people, as we have found this to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if we would like to make a group booking for more than twelve people together, Himalayan Glacier can arrange this too.

Himalayan Glacier provides attached rooms as much as possible, however tea houses or lodges of some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities.
If we are a solo traveler, we will share a room with someone else of same sex of our group. If we prefer a single room, then we may indicate our preference and get single rooms on request by paying single supplement USD 250. There are several places that do not allow single accommodations in the Everest Region. On paying single supplement, we will get single room in Kathmandu but it is possible only up to Namche Bazzar during the trek. Above Namchhe Bazzar single accommodation is not always feasible. However, Himalayan Glacier tries its best to provide single rooms in all places if possible.

certain gears are essential to be considered.

Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and Spring(March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest View Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. But the nights are cold and can fall to freezing level in higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for Everest Base Camp Trek, only issue is cold (obviously). Trekking in Summer or Monsoon(June, July) will be affected by rain but Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during Spring and Autumn. But during Monsoon and Winter the routes are not packed and visitors could enjoy rather best of nature.
