Introduction

This is the highest point on Earth: Mount Everest, Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, the Mother Goddess of the Universe, God’s forehead. Hundreds of books have been written and countless films have been made about it. Man has always tried to understand the greatness of Mount Everest. This is also our dream, we will go and meet this sacred mountain and immerse ourselves in the myth that surrounds it. We will follow the trails of the Sherpas through their homeland, the Khumbu Valley. Our trekking will take us inside the Sagarmatha National Park, home to the highest mountains in the world. We will take the classic route crossing the sherpas villages. We will learn about their culture and traditions at Namche Bazaar, and from Khumjung, admire the view of Ama Dablam, which might well be the most beautiful mountain in the world. From Tengpoche we have a view of the other ice giants of the Khumbu region. The road climbs over the Valley of Pheriche taking us to the Khumbu Glacier and further, it will take us through the Lobuche Mountains to get to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. We will climb a little higher from here: we will ascend to the summit of the Kala Patthar, and enjoy the unique view of the pyramid shape of Everest from the “Black Rock Mountain”, as if it were within reach. The ice world of the Khumbu Glacier spreads out below us, and the angular tip of Nuptse with its 7.860 meters, shines in the sun. Watching breathless, we admire the highest mountains in the world. But our trip promises much more than an experience with nature and mountains. Nepal, the ancient kingdom in the heart of the Himalayas, is without a doubt one of the most fascinating tourist destinations in the world. This Hindu and Buddhist country offers great appeal to those interested in culture. The Nepalese, a mosaic of 70 different human groups with more than 50 languages, are well known for their hospitality, and make every trip to Nepal an unforgettable experience. At Kathmandu, the capital city of the country, we will experience a great cultural and religious diversity. We will be surprised by the many Buddhist and Hindu sites, as well as by the artistically decorated temples. This tour program is the classic of our travel category “World Adventures”. SPONDYLUS invites you to join us on an incomparable and fantastic cultural journey, which also includes hikes to Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Namaste and welcome to Nepal!
