Everest Base Camp
Since Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay summited in 1953, many travelers have journeyed to ‘The Land of the Sherpa’ to experience a piece of this achievement, making it one of the most famous trekking destinations in the world.
This trek is for the sound of mind and body, as it takes you to remote regions at very high altitudes (5545m). You will pass through small villages along the way, allowing you to experience the local culture and marvel at the incredible views of Khumbu Glacier, Everest, and Nuptse.
Make this experience even more special and let us help you develop a fundraising scheme per meter climbed connected with a specific Nepali cause. The money will be managed by the Karma Foundation and could support the Save the Children partner project directly, or other worthwhile causes.
Get off the beaten path and climb high into the hills where you have the chance to experience Nepal’s diversity at its best. Many of our treks journey through Gurung, Magar, and Chapang ethnic regions and can be accomplished over the course of one day or one week.
Several of the villages are linked by homestay opportunities where you will have the chance to immerse yourself in the local culture, through food and customs.
Walk through emerald green fields, over ridges, and through rivers to reach some of the most remote and stunning villages in the world. Nepal is full of rugged hilltribe trekking opportunities appropriate for a variety of skillsets and desired durations.
Lo Manthang – the name itself conjures up a sense of mystique! You will journey into Upper Mustang where you will walk its villages, meets the locals, and immerse yourself in the local culture.
Few travelers journey to this region, primarily due to the high permit costs, but this means the area is relatively untouched and affords you the opportunity to experience something very few people in the world have.
No words can accurately describe Upper Mustang. You will need to come and see for yourself!
