Everest, Between the Yak and the Yeti
Everest’s region begins from the Solu, to the Rolwaling till the tibetan border and the Khumbu at the foothill of Mt.Everest.
The inhabitants of this large region are known world wide. The Sherpas were the first to work for the Himalayan expiditions.

In the Khumbu you will find the three highest summits of the world, Everest, Cho Oyu and the Lhotse.
Trek high up to be amongst the highest mountains in the world.
No other region will offer you treks with such a spectacular view of the top of the world.

Trek for a week to the Everest Base Camp or on the challenging trail of the three mountain passes till the Everest Base Camp, whichever you chose you will be hiking in high altitude landscapes.

Because buddhism forbids from killing animals you will have numerous chances to see golden pheasants and bue sheeps. The evasive snow leopards is extremely rare to see, you might find their paw prints in the snow !
At the Everest Base Camp, many groups of climbers from around the world get ready for the climb of their life, the Sherpas help tirelessly to make sure everything runs smoothly at this high altitude.
The first ‘sherpas’ came from Tibet 200 years ago, they were Khampas a sub-ethnic group of Tibet they settled in the Solu region.
Here lands are rich and fertile, because of this many sherpas remain farmers here in these beautiful valleys protected by important monasteries and their big lamas ( monks) .

The climate is more adapteable than that of the Northern parts with a good variety of flora. Beautiful conifers and rhododendrons forests, bamboo groves, overlooking clear water torrents.
Protected by the monks, the animals roam fearlessly in the valley, colourful birds, eagles, roe deers and red pandas. At night you might hear the leopards and bears grunt and walk by.

The Solu region will offer you the possibility to learn about the Sherpa way of life and their religion.

Because of it is remoteness and land less fertile lands the Rolwaling valley is less developped but closer to the high summits ! Trek on an itinerary far away from the classic trails and the comfortable lodges. Here you will be accomadated in tents. An authentic itinerary for the adventurous people taking you up to the frozen Tsho Rolpa lake overlooked by the Gauri Shanker, 7000m.
