You'll experience everything the other tourists see, such as the famous beauty of Thyangboche monastery, stupa's, and thriving bazaars, but you'll also get away from the main trails to take in timeless villages and outposts hidden away from most western eyes.
Even though you're fully supported by professionals on this trek, it can still be demanding in places - you're on the move for up to 7 hours a day and going as high as 3873m - so we've made up for it by making sure you have a superbly luxurious sleep each night. We've chosen the best mountain lodges available where you'll also enjoy an excellent standard of local cuisine, so leave your sleeping bag and stove behind!
And when all the walking is done, you're richly rewarded with two free days to explore the wonders of the Kathmandu valley (or sleep, it's totally up to you).
