From majestic Everest to the mystical valley of Kathmandu, Nepal really is an enchanted country. With trekking in the heart of the Himalaya plus plenty of time in our ancient capital city, the Everest Experience trip offers you the time and space to soak up the magic and enjoy the richness of the Nepal experience – all with a mixture of basic and comfort life in the wild.Starting and ending our holiday in Kathmandu we have opportunities to discover some of the world’s most important Hindu temples and palaces and to explore and shop in the maze of cobbled lanes and streets of the fabled Thamel area.

Flying directly in to the high Khumbu, relish the fantastic trekking under the eyes of many of the world’s highest mountains including Sagamartha, Mother Goddess of the Earth (Everest) herself. The Everest Experience takes us from the tiny airstrip at Lukla to the lap of Everest following the the Classic route to Everest.  Walking with the footsteps of some of our greatest Sherpas and climbers along the traditional expedition route we spend the mornings trekking with an experienced team of local guides and Sherpas reaching our Yeti Mountain Home luxury lodge & local lodges with time to chill out and relax or explore the locale. And what could be a marvellous experience than flying out from the lap of Everest to Lukla, on a privately chartered helicopter.
