Everest Humanitarian Trip
- Trip Grade: Easy
Escorted by pioneering young adventurer Karma Sherpa Co-Founder and director of The Small World Foundation- , you’ll undertake an extraordinary trek through the Everest region to Ama Dablam basecamp before descending to Thyangboche, the region’s most important spiritual centre, where you will enjoy a delightful three course meal served in a specially designed canvas dining tent with other groups who will also participate in the dinner. On the night, you’ll hear from an exemplary line-up of international and local guest speakers who will impart some fascinating tales and personal accounts of past Everest expeditions.
This trek, our most popular in the region, will weave through the famous Buddhist villages and monasteries of the Sherpa people while affording unparalleled views of some of the world’s highest peaks. The highlights of this trip are the days spent trekking above Namche Bazaar. Here we get beyond the established trails to our alpine camp beneath the awesome flanks of Ama Dablam. From our spectacular vantage point we gain a breathtaking 360 degree mountain panorama that culminates in the distinctive summit of Everest looming above the Nuptse-Lhotse wall. A further dimension to our trek is a visit to the Sherpa villages of Khunde and Khumjung where we visit some of Sir Edmund Hillary’s projects
