An exploratory journey across the Tibetan highlands and trek to the Advance Base Camp of Mount Everest (North side). The World’s Highest Trek that takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go…
After an insightful sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, you will fly to Tibet – the Forbidden Land. Tibet, with an average altitude in excess of 3500 meters, is the highest plateau in the world. Lying to the north of the great Himalayan range, Tibet is more or less an untamed land of nomads (drokpas), monasteries and high altitude desert that seem to stretch endlessly. Driving overland past the Tibetan plateau (‘Roof of the world’), a picturesque mosaic of Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen, ancient monasteries, high Mountain passes, wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain views opens up before you.
After reaching Rongbuk , you prepare yourself for the world’s highest trek that takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go without using any technical climbing gears and without mountaineering skill.

Trekking in Mustang from Jomsom to Lo Manthang and back was exceptional. We stayed at Fishtail Lodge in Pokhara .It was very good. We can only recommend a stay there. Likewise for Soaltee in Kathmandu.
