Overview

Starting and ending in Kathmandu, this 14 night / 15 day features the main reason why most people come to Nepal: Trekking in the Himalayas. The minimum amount of time is spent traveling between each destination, enabling one to make the most of their time in Nepal.
The trip truly lives up to its name with close up views of both the iconic Macchapuchre (Fishtail) capturing the skyline amongst the Annapurnas and of course Sagarmartha, Mother Goddess of the Earth as she (Everest) is known to the Sherpa people of the Khumbu. Whilst the trip offers an unparalleled breadth of colour and life the trekking days themselves are short and the accommodation luxurious allowing you time and space to savour the delights and relax into your holiday

Trip Highlights

  • While in Kathmandu, stay at Gokarna Forest Resort
  • A trekking holiday that shows off each of Nepal's most popular regions
  • Exciting mountains flights to Lukla and Pokhara
  • Two great treks and the best Everest and Annapurna lodges

Day : 5 Trek To Thame (3800m). 4-5 hrs trek.

After breakfast at our lodge we start the day with a 2 to 3-hour walk through forest of spruce, juniper and pine to the village of Thamo. This trail is much less used by trekkers and we will immediately notice the difference. It is, however, an important trail which leads all the way to Tibet via the Nangpa La on the shoulder of Cho Oyu (8012m). On today's trek we are likely to see few other trekkers. We stop for our lunch in Thamo which is the home village of the Ang Rita Sherpa, who has summitted Everest 10 times without oxygen. After lunch, we continue walking for another 2 hours to arrive at a deep gorge where the Bhote Koshi River thunders through the narrow defile. We cross a sturdy bridge spanning the gorge to reach Thame (3800m). This important village is the home of many famous mountaineers including Tensing Norgay the first man to reach the summit of Everest along with Sir Edmund Hillary. Apa Sherpa who has reached the summit at least 18 times lives here now. The village is very picturesque and also has a magnificent 16th century Nyingmapa gompa (monastery) built by Lama Rolwa Dorje. We check into our deluxe rooms with breathtaking views of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru.
