CLASSIC EVEREST Trek

One of the World's Best Treks 

When Everest comes calling they say there is no stopping oneself. There are numerous mountaineering options in Nepal. Eight of the 14 mountains over 8,000 meters high are located in this tiny Himalayan nation, and of these Everest is the ultimate challenge.Even before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa set foot on top of the world, the quest to conquer Mount Everest has always been a dream for adventure seekers. 

The Everest region’s beauty is unparalleled with its well-maintained trails and mountain lodges. The trekking routes that lie in this region start higher and stay higher in altitude than many others in the world (even in Nepal), offering unrivalled views of some of the world’s highest and incredible panoramas.
