Book It



2019 & 2020 - March 6 to 14, March 18 to 26, April 7 to 1, April 17 to 25, October 15 to 23, November 9 to 17 & December 19 to 27

Thank you for your interest in this trekking journey which we have set at ‘entry level’, effectively meaning it’s readily achievable by those with a medium level of fitness. The Journey offers a combination of natural beauty, culture and adventure in the beautiful Solukhumbu Valley which is home both to our people (the Sherpa) and the highest peak in the world, Everest, which we call Sagarmatha.

Trekking commences following a flight from Kathmandu to Paphlu (around 35 minutes) and follows trails around the valley with opportunity to view mountains of the Himalaya range, including Everest, Lhotse, Nupse, Kantiga, Amadablam, Thamserku and Numbur.

Moving up into the valley through the small villages which include Dhorphu, Junbesi, Edingma and Mopung, to Pangkarma and Phougmuche, the spirit and culture of the Sherpa becomes evident, and accommodation in the home of a Sherpa family adds significantly to impressions gained.

A visit to a Sherpa Buddhist school with monastery, and separately to a medical centre, provides trekkers the rare opportunity to speak with staff on local education matters and appreciate the scope and funding of medical facilities in the region.

The majesty of the Himalayas is evident each day of the journey as trails are followed through a rich variety of flora and fauna. At this time of the year, rhododendrons in full flower are prominent when passing many mountain streams along the route: a sight which is truly outstanding.

We would be pleased to have you on the journey and to introduce you to our country and way of life while you travel as part of our extended family.

Sherpa People

The best known and admired of all of Nepal’s ethnic groups, the Sherpa migrated to the high valleys south of Mt Everest from eastern Tibet about 450 years ago. Their Tibetan origins are reflected in their language, customs and religion. The local Sherpa villagers from Pangkarma introduce trek participants to their way of life, and a traditional Sherpa meal with them is on the trip agenda. The staff and crew will all be local Sherpa people from Solukhumbu. The walks will all be in their ’back yard’, so the many questions about the land and its people can be answered promptly and accurately.
