Visit the stunning homeland of the Sherpa people and stand in the shadow of the mountain they call Chomolungma – Mount Everest. Whether you want to climb a 6000m peak (or an 8000m peak!) or you want to embark on a trekking adventure, we’ve got the perfect trip for you.
A classic Sherpa village surrounded by towering peaks
All of our adventures in Nepal begin in the colorful city of Kathmandu where the historic sites, the restaurants and the shopping could keep you occupied for days on end. After two days in the city, we fly to a place that so greatly contrasts Kathmandu – the land of the Sherpa’s, Everest’s Khumbu Valley. Our classic trip, the Everest Base Camp Trek, is offered twice a year and it is truly spectacular. This year we are also offering a shorter trek through the Everest Region over the Christmas holidays. This trip is designed to be family friendly, so bring the kids! In the next few months, we will also be introducing a trek to the remote Dolpo region of Nepal. Stay tuned to the newsletters and Berg Adventures Blog for more on this exciting new adventure!
Ama Dablam – quite the sight
If you have never done much trekking before, the Everest Base Camp Trek is a great introduction. Days are long and you’ll often find yourself walking up hill, but the pace is relaxed and you will be well looked after. We stay in comfortable tea lodges in spectacular locations all along the route, and have arguably the best cook in the region whose specialties include roasted chicken, “sushi” and chocolate cake.
If trekking to Base Camp doesn’t sound challenging enough for you, ask us about our High Passes of Everest adventure or about climbing one of the renowned peaks in the Everest region such as Lobuche Peak, Island Peak or Ama Dablam. Each of these adventures travels to base camp with the trekking team before branching off to further explore the beauty of the Everest Region.
