Visit Namche Bazaar, a traditional Sherpa village and unofficial capital of the Khumbu region on this fast-paced trip. During 4 comfortable days of trekking, you'll pass through Sagarmatha National Park, through alpine forests, and visit ancient Buddhist sites.

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 short trek has the advantage of being slightly farther away from the big peaks, meaning views from the trail encompass much more of the Himalaya. Enjoy the scenery, get acquainted with Sherpa culture, and explore Kathmandu in just 7 days.
Ideal for those with limited trekking time, this fast-paced Nepal trip takes you along the first few days of the trail to Everest Base Camp up to Namche Bazaar, a traditional Sherpa village and the unofficial capital of the Khumbu region.

Experience the diversity of Nepal through a visit to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Kathmandu is a vibrant city, where they say there are more temples than abodes and more gods than men. In Pokhara, Nepal's adventure capital, you can relax by the lakeside or go paddling, paragliding, or trekking in the nearby Himalaya. Then, head to Chitwan, Nepal's lowest altitude at just under 100m above sea level, and go on a safari to see rhinos, various types of monkeys and deer, and perhaps even a tiger.
