This fascinating Legendary Classic trek offers a wonderful opportunity to climb Kalapathar (5,535m), overlooking the Everest Base Camp area, superb view of the highest mountains, including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, and to interact with the indigenous people. It is considered the highly praised trekking route to Everest Region. It was in 1952 when two renewed figures, Sir Edmund Hillary and Mr Tenzing Sherpa, took the same route to Mt. Everest.
After a seven hours scenic drive to Jiri, we follow the spectacular route via the Solukhumbu area through the heart of fine Sherpa villages, each village having something new to offer. It offers ample opportunity to explore the beautiful forest, farming country sides and several monasteries situated at high elevations on the way to Lukla. Once one has passed Lukla, we climb onto Namche, the main trading village of the Khumbu area, continuing via Thyangboche monastery to Pheriche and Lobuche.
The trek has several attractions: the spectacular scenery and the unique culture of the Sherpa people of Solukhumbu. In this region, Mt. Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are located.
