Trek to the base of the tallest peak in the world—Mount Everest

On this bucket-list challenge, you will trek to the doorway of the highest peak in the world—Mount Everest.

But first, you’ll discover the sensory overload that is Kathmandu—Nepal’s lively capital city. Ignite all your sense with the sounds and smells of a city that is both heading towards modernity while resolutely upholding its traditional religious and cultural individuality.

From a bustling capital to the tranquillity of the Himalayas, for 12 days you will trek through alpine meadows, rhododendron forest, over rivers and along mule tracks between snow-capped mountains.

During the day, you’ll experience the splendour of the Himalayas with a team of local guides and sherpas. By night, you will fall asleep in traditional lodges and teahouses in secluded Nepalese villages.

At the conclusion of your adventure, you and your team will travel back to Kathmandu to feast on delicious fare at Bricks Café, a local institution and the ultimate place to honour your successes.
