from $1,649.00

Mountain and Monastery Trek in Everest Region is a classic Everest Trek which will take you around the Everest region, which has recently witnessed the renaissance of Tibetan Buddhism with the renovation of Thyangboche Monastery at (3870 m), one of the world�s highest Buddhist Monasteries. Tyangboche Monastery is the biggest monastery in the Everest Region and is surrounded by towering icy peaks. From here, we can see sun set and sun rise over Everest if the weather is clear. While at Tyangboche, look around the monastery in the bushes, you will most likely encounter a musk deer or variety of colorful pheasants.

Lamaistic Buddhism plays an integral part and is influential in the lives of these Sherpa people. En route Buddhist Nyingmapa monasteries and monks, the ever-present yaks, high pastures and mountains that are unforgettable in their gem-like presence, will fascinate you. Reincarnated Lamas, the Yeti�s scalp, saffron robed monks and legendary mountains of Khumbu � Everest (8848 m), Kwangde (6187 m) Ama Dablam (6812 m), Lhotse (8501 m) and Nuptse (7879 m) offer a stupendous backdrop experience for a lifetime.

All about the MOUNTAINS and MONASTERY TREK in EVEREST REGION.

SAGARMATHA NATIONAL PARK
Sagarmatha National Park is located in the remote area of Solukhumbu in eastern Nepal and encompasses the world�s highest mountain, Everest (8848m) or Sagarmatha (the Nepali name for Everest) and many other Himalayan giants, such as Lhotse (8516m), Cho-yo Ama Dablam (8201m) and Pumori (7161m). This vast region contains multiple routes and offers a good standard of amenities for visiting trekkers.

LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
This trek is a bit demanding as we climb to the peak altitude of 5360m. Trekking can become streneous as we gain elevation, over 4000m, also some days may require walking for 4 to 9 hours. Nevertheless, if you are physically and mentally fit, you can enjoy this trek like all the other participants.

TRAVEL
You may prefer to travel to the Sagarmatha National Park via the 45 minute domestic flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing Hilary Airport at Lukla. Alternatively, you may like to take a one day bus to the town of jiri and from there two days trek to Lukla, where the main trek starts.

FOOD AND ACCOMMODATION
On your way to trek, there are Guest Lodges that provide good accommodation and a appreciable choice of prepared meals. However, it is highly advisable to bring your own sleeping bag, as during the peak season, bedding can be in short supply and it can get very cold at higher altitudes.

BEST TIME TO TREK
March to May is one of the best times to trek with lots of flowers in bloom, especially rhododendrons in the mountains. While the sky may not be very clear like in the autumn months, it is the second busiest season for trekking and mountaineering.

June to August is a rainy season but the mountains and hills are covered with lush, full green forests and vegetation. Mountain views are not guaranteed as it is generally cloudly everyday but if you love to explore the trails and nature in quite, this is the perfect time to trek because very few people travel at this time of the year.

September to November is the by far the busiest and the best season with spectacular views of mountains. The sky is very clear as the weather is easily predictable. However, the most popular trails can become quite busy at this time.

December to February is a winter season and it is good time to trek because the sky is clear and the number of trekkers are reduced due to cold temperature.

SAFETY ON THE TRAIL AND ACCLIMATISATION
All our guides are well trained in First Aid and are highly experienced in trekking in Nepal. We give utmost priority to safety and our staff will be available for any issues, and alert to any symptoms of illness that may come up.

As you reach any point above 3000m, you could face with altitude problems, Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), that can be life threatening. This is why we have specially designed our trip itinerary so that you have sufficient time to acclimatise to the higher altitude. Our guides are well experienced and will act accordingly with the seriousness of any mountain sickness suffered. In case of AMS, the easiest and best remedy is to descend quickly, so never ignore the symptoms and please talk to your guide or leader if you feel uneasy. They are trained to manage the logistics and assess the situation continually to make sure that you have a safe trip and enjoy yourself.
