Best Season: Feb - May, Sept - Nov

The lore of the Himalayas looms largest around the great 8, 000m peak massifs of Cho-Oyo, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. The remote valleys beneath these peaks are threaded by ancient trails. Some like the well-traveled path to Everest Base Camp are well known among western trekkers and mountaineers. Others including the trail through Nangpa La between Namche Bazar and Tibet are known to Tibetan Monks and traders, but have long been forbidden to westerners. This exploratory trip is our attempt to offer fresh insight, little trod trails and new visual perspectives on this area of greatest Himalayan peaks.

The trek also traces important history of the Sherpa people. They settled the region in the late 1400s or early 1500s, arriving from the eastern Tibetan province of Salmo Gang. Sherpas appears to have left their homeland and crossed the Nangpa–La pass in to Nepal. The economy of the Sherpa community has traditionally been agriculture, livestock herding and trading between Nepal and Tibet. With the coming of the Mountaineering Expedition since 1950s the region has attracted large number of tourist as climbers and adventure trekkers.
