We do all the paperwork that includes your trek permits and provide you with a highly experienced trek crew that leaves you free to take in the fabulous sights as you hike up above the timberline, the well-marked trails take you up to the bustling happening mountain city of Namche – the capital of the world-famous Khumbu we all know as the Everest region of Nepal’s majestic Himalayas. 
Namche is rightfully known as the Nevada or sin city of Nepal’s trailblazing Himalayas. You will find some perks hereabouts above 3500m hardly available in the ancient capital city of Nepal – Kathmandu. You get 2 days to hang around in Namche to acclimatize so you get used to the thin air you experience as the elevations go higher above the tree lines.

Everest stares at you from this lovely monastery which has some of the best vantage points of the highest peaks in the world, stunning view areas of epic fame worldwide for their box office views, not found anywhere else in Nepal’s spectacular Himalayas. Our trek lumbers on to the exciting village of Luboche and Gorakshep as we begin to feel the effects of altitude over 5000m, but the sights warm our cold bodies as we clamber on to culminate at the famous Everest Base Camp, a point that has seen world-renowned alpine legends who began their famous summits right from this point before we reach Kalapathar at 5545m where sights of the world’s most famous peaks leave us gasping for breath, we soon find it as we hike down to Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu and a warm soft luxury bed to reminisce on a successful adventure journey that you could narrate to the future generations on a cold winter evening as you relax by the fireside in the warm confines of home sweet home.
