This trek itinerary has been designed so that walkers can enjoy the splendours of the Everest region in comfort, staying in lodges en route rather than camping.

Your journey starts in Kathmandu where you can begin your acclimatisation and recover from the outbound journey whilst exploring this delightful city at the base of the mighty Himalaya.

You then fly to Lukla to start your 6-night trek staying in simple but comfortable lodges en route. The pace of the trek is such that you will have plenty of time to relax in the lodge gardens, explore the local Sherpa villages and also to enjoy longer, more ambitious hikes to unspoiled monasteries. The lodges all have separate rooms with attached bathrooms and hot showers, whilst the gardens afford magnificent views of the surrounding peaks.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
