15-Day Mount Everest Trek – Nepal

15-Day Guided Himalayan Trek with Accommodations from Bohemian Tours

Days 1–3 The tour kicks off in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. After an overnight stay, you’ll board a twin-engine plane for the flight to Lukla. Along the way, take in breathtaking views of the towering Himalayas. From Lukla, you’ll trek to Phakding to spend the night.

The next day begins with an exhilarating hike to Namche, a prosperous village in the Khumbu Valley. Here, you can visit an authentic teahouse or stock up on handcrafted items and gear for the rest of the hike.

Days 4–5 After taking a day off to recharge, the group heads for Khumbila Mountain. At the base of this sacred peak, there’s a cave housing what is rumored to be the skull of a yeti. Further along at Tyangboche Monastery, you can get a panoramic look at Mount Everest and its equally imposing neighbors.

Days 6–9 En route to the village of Dingboche, the landscape is dominated by deep green fields where wild yak sometimes graze. A long hike through the Imja Tse Valley eventually opens onto unparalleled views of Lhotse, the world’s fourth-tallest mountain.

As the hike continues, the verdant hillside gives way to rugged trails alongside the enormous Khumbu glacier. Eventually you’ll reach the village of Gorek Shep, where you can refuel and acclimate yourself to the altitude before continuing up to the summit of Kala Pattar.

Days 10–15 After another day of journeying, the tour finally arrives at Everest Base Camp at the foot of the mountain. After taking a while to soak it all in, you’ll begin the descent, traveling back the same way you came. The trek wraps up in Lukla before a brief flight back to Kathmandu.

That sounds like a lot of fun! I'm certain I could handle the distance and the elevation change, but the absolute elevation would kill me. I couldn't handle the lack of oxygen.

Thanks for the update. Ever since seeing this deal, I've been wondering if SecondGunman from FW could endure such conditions.

My phone must have eaten the first sentence......

That's a decent price and a reasonable discount from their normal price, provided you can cover the airfare to the starting point.

I rarely post random stuff in hot deals without at least a small comment about the deal itself. Oh well. At least this gave respdoc a chance to be his usual happy self.

Thanks OP, while i don't think I will be using this particular deal, but it does give me a decent idea of what I can do for my sabbatical next year

It includes possible death from High Altitude Pulmonary Edema for free.

Bring 'gifts' for random Maoist toll booths

Yeah, it does sound like fun but I wouldn't dare do it these days. I've been that high before, I don't think that would be a problem for me, though.

Best and cheapest is simply to fly to Kathmandu and book a guide when there.
Will probably cost 1/3 of above-stated trek.
Every hotel and guest house can find you a guide and make arrangements.
The tours are usually outsourced to locals anyway.

Don't piss off the sherpas!

Is there a FW acievement for reaching the summit?
