Everest Trek to Kalapater

If you have dreamed of seeing Mt. Everest, the world's highest mountain, you have many chances on this classic trek. Seated on the 'throne of the Gods' at Kalapatar (5545m) near Everest Base Camp, you are greeted with superb views of Mt. Everest, Pumori and Lhotse.

This great Himalayan range grows more awesome with each step, as you trek through the Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu District. 'Sagarmatha' is the Nepalese name for Mt. Everest. To the Sherpa people who live in this area, this great mountain is affectionately called 'Chomolungma' the Goddess mother of the world. You pass through verdant valleys, forests of pine, and lovely Sherpa villages and farms. There are house visits with families, monastery tours at Tengboche, market days in Lukla and Namche Bazaar, and friendly Sherpas to get to know along the way.
