A trek to view the highest mountain in the world. This historic route follows the trail taken by mountaineers for the last half century hoping to conquer Mt. Everest, one of the world premier climbing objectives.
Trekking first from Lukla to Namche Bazaar the trail then gradually ascends to the spectacular site of Thyangboche Monastery. Shortly after Thyanboche the trail climbs above the tree line into the ultra alpine landscape of rock, snow, and ice of the upper Khumbu valley crossing the Khumbu glacier to rocky out cropping known as Kalapattar. The peak of this rocky 5540m "hill" offers a spectacular classic view of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Kantega (6,809m), Lhotse (8,511m) and Amadablam (6,856m). A challenging climb in the thin Himalayan air but your efforts will be truly rewarded.
