Cross time and cultures as you trek, immersing yourself in both Sherpa and Tibetan tradition. Visit sacred pilgrimage sites such as Muktinath, the ancient Bonpa monastery at Lupra and, perhaps the most photogenic monastery of them all, Thyangboche, perched in the shadows of Everest.
You'll see what all the tourist trails have to offer, but you'll also escape them. We'll duck away from the well trodden trekking routes and visit villages and local people that remain in a time all of their own. The insights you'll gain into the lives of these mountain villagers will be more stunning than any scenic landscape.
You'll sleep off the beaten track in beautiful, carefully chosen, eco-friendly, luxury lodges at the end of every day. We've hand picked all of the lodges along your route, making sure you're well looked after and spoiled with a few creature comforts look out the window and you'll see a mountain backdrop that's as naturally fabulous as the food you'll be enjoying.
