This ultimate challenge is an outstanding trek to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain allowing time to explore the famous villages and monasteries in the foot of the world’s highest peak. Following the classic expedition route to Thyangboche, we trek higher above the tree line to a moraine of the Khumbu glacier bringing us to Lobuche. We make an early morning ascent of kala Patthar (5,554 m), a ridge south of Mt. Pumori to be rewarded with incredible panorama of Everest, Cho Oyu, Lohtse and Makalu. Colorful fluttering prayer flags and Buddhist monasteries along the way are symbolic to the traditional Sherpa culture.
