This trek is very similar to the Everest Base Camp trek, but without going to Base Camp. The climax of this trek, hiking up Kala Pattar is also the highlight as it offers spectacular views of Mount Everest. This picturesque trek incorporates stunning views of the surrounding mountains, historic gompas, beautiful forests and a real insight into local Sherpa village life.
Good To Know
Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 36 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
