The Everest Namche bazaar trek is a short and suitable trek for those first timers who wish to explore the thrilling walks and spectacular views of the high Himalayas. The trek takes you to visit popular places including Mt. Everest (8848m) and Mt. Ama Dabalam. Short hike to Everest View Hotel is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the area, which has a wide range of scenic landscapes to offer.

Namche Bazaar, a hustling and bustling amphitheater style town is situated in the Khumbu region, near Mt. Everest. It is undoubtedly one of the most stunning places in the world which offers awe-inspiring sights of Mt. Everest range. The town is an unofficial capital of the Everest region of Nepal and is a gateway for trekkers and climbers heading to Mt. Everest base camp. Namche Bazaar, also known as the Sherpa land was once an important trading center between Tibet and Nepal. 

Previously considered as a small developing town in the mountain region, now is a very popular trekking site among those adventure seekers who wish to spend their vacation in a peaceful place to escape from their daily life. This is a beautiful town with a handful of facilities. However, the guest house and lodges in the town are well-furnished and most of them have nice and cozy rooms with a facility of modern toilets and bathrooms. Also, banks, ATM machines, internet cafes, nightclubs, popular restaurants and adventure gear shops are now available in Namche Bazaar. Since the town is the gateway to Everest base camp and the best place to acclimatize, the town is always crowded. People who are heading to Everest base camp or those who are returning back from Lukla, all tend to stop and enjoy a day roaming around the markets at Namche Bazaar.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
