Himalayas

Trekking the Himalaya, especially the Khumbu or Everest Area, is the trip of a lifetime for hikers and adventure seekers. The Sherpa and other local people of this region make the trip so much more special. You'll visit Sherpa villages, walk trails lined with devotional mani stones, and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Buddhist culture. Arrival into Nepal is to Khatmandu, where you will spend two nights preparing for your trek.  Lodging in Khatmandu is at Hotel Marshyangdi or similar in the bustling Thamel area of the city. While in Kathmandu you will visit some Hindu and Buddhist holy places before leaving to fly to the mountains.

This trek will be led by Lema Peter, Serengeti Pride owner and co-founder, in partnership with local Nepal guides and porters.  Serengeti Pride co-founder Erika Bloom will be in Kathmandu area to welcome the group to Nepal.  

We fly Khatmandu to Lukla, one of the most exciting flights in the world. Then we start trekking up the main valley towards Mt. Everest. We spend two nights in Namche Bazaar, the center of the Sherpa culture and trade. An acclimatization day is spent exploring the area above Namche, perhaps including tea on the deck of the Everest View Hotel.  Then we slowly head up the valley toward our ultimate destination, Everest Base Camp and the amazing views from nearby Kala Pathar, with more acclimatization along the way.  Our highest elevation is the optional ascent of Kala Pathar, around 18,500'.  This trek is truly an incredible experience of this magnificent region and its fascinating people. Magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and so many other snow capped mountains from the top of Kala Pathar, and many views of the peaks from the trails while hiking - including nearby Ama Dablam.  During our trek, we'll stay in local lodges and teahouses.  We will team with our same local guide/outfitter service while having Lema Peter along as the trip leader.  The group will stay at some of the same hotels and lodges used by the 2015 Serengeti Pride Gokyo trek, which covered some of the same trails.

 After the flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu we spend one night in the city before departing for home.
