Ama Dablam (22,349 ft / 6,812 m) translates as "Mother's necklace"
Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek - 13 Days

The 13-day version of this trip features nine days of trekking in the Khumbu and Everest regions, bringing you to the foot of towering Aba Dablam. Along the way, visit the Sherpa monastery at Tengboche, have lunch at Ama Dablam base camp, and spend time acclimatizing at the world-famous Namche Bazaar. Before your trek, you'll have a bonus day in Kathmandu—take a city tour with a local guide, day-trip into the Kathmandu Valley, or simply take advantage of the fantastic eateries and nightlife and bustling Thamel.

Phoksundo Lake
Lake Phoksundo Trek - 13 Days

This epic yet fairly easy trek takes you through the vast Dolpo area of Western Nepal; because it's only been open to trekkers since 1989, this is one of the least-explored regions of this country. You'll pass through wonderful Himalayan forests, traditional villages, picturesque rivers, and magnificent waterfalls. The highlight is Lake Phoksundo, considered a natural treasure in Nepal and is sacred to Buddhists and followers of the Bonpo religion. Along the way, you'll see rich flora and fauna, including musk deer, blue sheep, great Tibetan sheep, Himalayan tahr, and perhaps even the very rare and elusive snow leopard.

Khopra Danda Trek - 13 Days

Also known as the Khopra Ridge, this moderate, off-the-beaten-track adventure is a peaceful alternative to more popular treks in the region. For nine days you'll climb your way through local villages, terraced farmland, and dense bamboo, oak, pine, and rhododendron forests with rewarding vistas of snow-capped Annapurnas. There are plenty of chances to observe and participate in traditional Nepali lifestyle rituals, including staying in teahouses and taking a day-hike to Kaire, a sacred lake that Hindus believe will help you achieve Nirvana.

Early morning view from Kongde Lodge
Kongde & Ama Dablam Luxury Trek - 13 Days

This luxury trek takes you through the Khumbu region of Nepal, bringing you to the foot of the world’s highest mountains. Throughout the trek, you will have great views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam, as well as great glaciers, snowfields, and ridges. At the end of each day, you'll retire to luxury accommodations, where you can enjoy a hot shower, sink into a cozy bed, and dine with phenomenal views of the Himalaya just beyond. Along the way, you'll also learn the history and traditions of the Kathmandu Valley, experience the culture of amazing Sherpa villages, and have the opportunity to visit famous Buddhist monasteries.

Himalayan morning
Luxury Annapurna Panorama Trek & Jungle Safari - 13 Days

Experience all that Nepal has to offer in this luxury trip that combines the thrill of trekking the Himalaya, going on exotic jungle safaris (by jeep and by boat), and exploring both city centers and rural life... all in style. This itinerary combines a 4-day trek through the Annapurna region with time to explore Kathmandu, the lakeside city of Pokhara, as well as a stint in the jungle, where you'll stay in an elephant camp. Spend your days adventuring and your nights relaxing in luxe accommodations, as you enjoy sweeping vistas and stellar hospitality.

The view from Pikey Peak
Pikey Peak to Lukla Trek in the Lower Everest Region - 13 Days

Sir Edmund Hillary claimed that the view of the lower Everest region from Pikey Peak is the best in all of Nepal, and we're inclined to agree. This trek has the advantage of being slightly farther away from the big peaks, meaning views from the trail encompass much more of the Himalaya. You'll also visit Thupten Choling Monastery, where you can meditate with the resident nuns and monks. Enjoy the extraordinary scenery, get acquainted with Sherpa culture, and explore Kathmandu on this gorgeous route.
