On your first night, you will be accommodated in one of the most recommended heritage hotel in Kathmandu, Dwarika’s before we fly off to Lukla. Having spent a day acclimatizing, we trek up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar. We ascend steadily up the Everest trail, passing through typical Sherpa settlements, with plenty of time for rest and recuperation and also absorbing the magnificence of the surrounding mountain views. Our trek takes us to the antiquated Buddhist Thyangboche Monastery where the Rimdu festival is observed in autumn. We return via the old trading route of Tibet.
