Explore the incredible country of Nepal during this 16-day trek, which will combine the breathtaking landscape of the tallest mountains on the planet with the unique sights and sounds of the country’s Buddhist culture.  Let me guide you through this classic Himalayan trekking route!

This 16-day trek through the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya will take you through Buddhist Sherpa villages, over an old Tibetan caravan route, and through some of the most impressive landscape on the planet earth, with numerous 8,000 m peaks, including Mt. Everest, dotting the landscape.  During this program, you will summit Gokyo Ri (5483 m), visit Cho Oyo Base camp (5200 m), and cross Renjo Pass (5345 m).  As well as being a few of the trip’s highlights, they are also the highest points in terms of altitude.

While long, this program is not considered technical, therefore mountaineering or climbing experience is not required.  Participants should have a reasonable level of fitness, however: we recommend that you are an active hiker or runner who can run at least 5-10 km (about 4-5 hours of hiking) and can cover 600-800 vertical meters with an 8-10 kg pack.

This program starts and ends in Kathmandu, with nightly stops at guesthouses along the route.   You will be responsible for your food during the duration of the trek, which we estimate at around USD $8-12 per day.  A day-by-day itinerary is included below.

Reserve now for an unforgettable 16-day adventure through one of the most iconic trekking spots in the world – Nepal!  You will be awed by the enormous 8000 m peaks you encounter along the way, and I promise it will be an experience you will not soon forget.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!
