Everest Trekking Off The Beaten Path Culinary N Wellness Adventure 11 days

  • Shared tour
  • Family friendly
  • Eco Responsible

This trek takes place a two- to three-day walk below Lukla where the regular trek in the Everest region usually begins. We have chosen a route that brings trekkers through villages and areas where next to no trekkers have been through. It is entirely off the grid from the touristy areas from Lukla and above.

This unique program includes doing a trek to see Mount Thamserku, 6,608m, Kusum Kanggaru 6,367m, Charpate Himal (Kyashar) 6,769m, and Mera Peak 6,476m along with other smaller Himalayan peaks with a cultural immersion by witnessing the lifestyles of the Rai ethnic group. We were the first and so far only trekking company to have brought foreigners to these villages.

Trekking is a wellness activity as it involves detoxing through perspiration, calming the mind, and eating healthy.

Our trekking chefs use superfood as ingredients to give our trekkers much-needed nourishment after a rigorous day of hiking. Our meals help to strengthen the immune system.
