This trip combines the best of both worlds: seeing the popular Khumbu area around Mt. Everest without the crowds, and spending a full week on a remote trail that rarely sees trekkers. This is the route used by the famous British explorer, H.W. Tilman, on the first ever Everest trek back in 1950. We begin with a flight to Tumlingtar, one of the most spectacular flights in the Himalayas. During the flight we will be able to see eight of the 10 tallest peaks in the world, with close-up views of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. The first week of the trek is rugged, remote, and dramatic. We hike from the hot, subtropical Arun River Valley (2,900′) up over the Salpa Pass (10,990′) in just a few days.

On our way to Sherpa country we have fantastic views of Makalu, Kangchenjunga, and Everest’s rarelyseen east face. After a week of passing through villages that have changed little for centuries, we begin to trek to Everest Base Camp. Enroute we’ll spend several days acclimatizing at Namiche Bazaar and Thyangboche Monastery.
The final days’ trek to Base Camp are absolutely spectacular. We fly out from Syangboche. On the April departure, we are treated to spectacular rhododendron forests in full bloom.
