15 Day Thyangboche Trek

This trek into the Everest country is a short one and that is intended as an introduction to the Khumbu area. It is also for those not able or sure about trekking into the mountains, but at the same time want to get a ‘feel’ of the Himalayan air and savor the scenery. The trek to Namche and Thyangboche is a popular want we are likely to encounter ‘highly traffic’. For the trekker on his first high altitude trip, this acts as an assurance. Of course the sight of Everest and the surrounding peaks makes it all the more worthwhile.
