Nepal Trekking

April 2020

Join me on one of my favorite destinations!

This 11 day trek into the heart of the Himalayas will begin with your arrival in Kathmandu. We will spend a couple of days seeing the city, shopping, and touring sites like Swayambhunath (the monkey temple) and the Great Boudhanath Stupa  based out of our comfortable hotel in the Thamel district.

The true ADVENTURE starts as we fly into the Solukhumbu and land at Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla at 9,383ft. From here we step back in time and follow the footsteps of the earliest Everest climbers and begin our trek. 

over the next days we will walk among the Sherpa people, villages, yaks, and the high peaks of the Himalaya. The scenery is breathtaking. 

We will spend acclimatization days in Namche Bazaar and hike to the overlook where we will have unprecedented veiws of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Mt. EVEREST!

Our destination is Tengboche with its Tibetan Buddhist Monastery and sweeping veiws of the Khumbu Valley. 

Then it's "down hill" from there. 


This is a strenous trek. Accomodations are comfortable and the food is basic, very good, but basic. Our hosts, the Sherpa people, are the kindest people you will meet and they go to every length to make us comfortable.
