The Everest region is famous for trekking, mountaineering, peak climbing and expedition. Among the major destinations of trekking in Nepal, Everest region stood second despite poor accessibility. The number of trekkers to Everest has increased dramatically because of the publicity the mountain has received from several sources. Solu Khumbu is famous not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain, Mt.Everest (8848m.), but also for its Sherpa villages and age-old monasteries.

Being situated at higher altitude, the region has high risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) if due emphasis is not given for acclimatization. If symptoms like- headache, loss appetite and vomiting are seen, one has to immediately inform to the guide so that he would facilitate to take first-aid treatment or take you to the near by health post or he will take you down to the lower altitude.

This is a classic teahouse trek that passes through high mountain villages inhabited by the Sherpa people, a mountain people of Tibetan heritage who migrated south over the Himalayan chain more than 500 years ago, settling into the high valleys of the Nepal Himalaya. The Sherpas are revered for their incredible strength as local high-altitude alpine climbing guides and are famous for their engaging personalities, kindness and generosity.

We would take a breathtaking flight over scenic-mountain passes, to Lukla, a small village at the mouth of the upper Khumbu Valley. After two days of trekking north, we’ll arrive at Namche Bazaar (3440m.) and spend two nights acclimatizing at this relatively high elevation. From this small settlement we trek to a village on the old Tibetan salt route, Thame. Thame monastery would be visited and the next day we’ll travel to Kunde & Khumjung and hike to Phortse. We will travel to Tengboche from Phortse. We would visit the largest Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu, the Tengboche Monastery and return to Lukla. This outstanding trek offers an excellent opportunity to connect us with the Sherpa people of Nepal and become introduced to high altitude life in the Himalaya.
