Seasons

Pre-monsoon (March–May) and post-monsoon (October to late November) are ideal. Monsoon and winter treks are possible, but much more difficult.

Centres

Access is via Kathmandu. Namche is the central village; Thame, Dingboche also have facilities. Tea houses everywhere.

Difficulty

Technically no great difficulties, but the need to acclimatise and manage the transition to altitude are crucial to having a great trek. Some of the high passes (Cho La) will have snow.

Must See

For the mountain lover, some of the greatest views on earth, but the friendly Sherpa people, Bhuddist gompas and local culture make this a much greater experience.


TREKKING IN NEPAL

The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal is a trekker’s dream. The dramatic beauty of Nepal's mountains is legendary; from the lush foothills stepped with immaculate terracing, to the stark upper regions of snow, ice and towering walls of rock, Nepal offers a series of unfolding landscapes that impress all who wander through.


GUIDEBOOK

This guidebook covers just one region of this magical land, Solu-Khumbu (home of the Sherpa people) and its northern neighbour in Tibet. This guidebook describes nine treks, with Everest as the focus, as well as a trek to Rongbuk and another from Kharta to the Kangshung Face, on the Tibetan side of Everest. The nine multiday treks vary from one to 11 days in length, with the longest trek covering 65km and the shortest, 18km.

Each of the routes described will open the eyes of trekkers to scenes of unbelievable grandeur. Although trekking in the Everest region can be pretty demanding at times, the majority of trails are so well travelled that it’s almost impossible to get lost. The main treks have been broken into groups of several days, with each multiday section divided into sub-sections, rather than manageable day-sized stages.
