This scenic trek through the river valley of the Dudh Kosi, brings you to the traditional Sherpa villages of Namche, Khumjung and Khunde and the monasteries at Thyangboche and Pangboche. You will meet the Sherpas, enjoy their world renowned hospitality and witness how life continues very much as it has done for centuries. Our highest point is Pangboche [3908m] and its delightfully unspoilt monastery. There is also a chance to visit the unusual Buddhist nunnery at Deboche and the famous Thyangboche Monastery, set high on its ridge, commanding some of the best views in the area.
Indeed, throughout this trek, you will have magnificent views of Mt Everest [8848m], Lhotse [8501m], Nuptse [7879m], Ama Dablam [6856m], Thamserku [6608m] and Kantega [6685m] and the great glaciers, snowfields and ice ridges, glisten in the Himalayan sun. There are also the dark forests, open pastures and masses of rhododendron flowers in the pre-monsoon, or the reds and gold of autumn in the post-monsoon.
Look out for the huge lammergeyers, with a 2 to 3m wingspan, circling on the up draughts, the proud that, the Himalayan mountain goat silhouetted on a high ridgeline, or the strange musk deer, shyly scurrying through the undergrowth. See also the intricately carved mani stones, prayer flags fluttering in the breeze and the all-seeing eyes of Buddha on every chorten and stupa. This is an area rich in cultural, religious and environmental interests, set in the awe-inspiring landscape below the highest mountain on Earth.
