Khumbu Everest Trek

When Mallory was questioned why he wanted to climb Everest he replied: "Because its there"; but it took more than 3 decades and in this period more than 20 expeditions tried but failed to summit the mighty and magnificent Mt. Everest. Finally on May 28th 1953 – Mt. Everest was first conquered by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and till 2003 1300 climbers has reached the 'Top of the World'. Today, after more than 5 decades, the trail to the mighty and magnificent mountain remains the same. Passing through Sherpa villages we do see a lot of changes with cyber-cafes and pubs with pool tables along the way. However, one thing that has remained constant over the generations is the absolutely spectacular view of the Himalayan ranges including the Big Three- Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse and Mt. Lhotse.

The Khumbu Everest Trek takes us to the foothills of the mightiest of the mountains in the world. Enroute, we traverse through forests, rivers, villages, from temperate to snow line regions. The Himalayas are best seen on this trek as one traces the main route through the Khumbu region from the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar. Trekkers get a close view of the world's greatest mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Thamserku, Tawache and others.
