trip Overview

Classic Everest is a less frequent way to travel the base camp of the world’s tallest peak, Everest. It provides us a remarkable adventure experience of a lifetime. We can enjoy the beauty of the low and high landscapes of Solu and Khumbu Valley within the highest world heritage sites Sagarmatha National Park. You get a chance to see the incredible view on the Everest.

Classic Everest trek starts from Jiri. On the way, there are many tea houses where you can stay and eat local as well as western food. Also, we suggest you try authentic Himalayan cuisines. Trekking through the rural farm and small charming villages, it joins the trail at Khumbu near Namche Bazaar. The trek follows farms and traditional Buddhist villages’ routes with overwhelming views of the high snow-capped peaks of the world. Then you follow the trail to the villages of Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche where Yaks can be seen grazing in the high meadows. Walking two hours from Everest Base Camp you will reach Gorakshep which is the last settlement on our trail. This trek continues to the highest spot of this adventure at Kalapathar for the best possible views of the Himalayan range. We go back on the same trail to reach Lukla for the flight to Kathmandu. This incredible journey ends with awesome memories and a magnificent time in the high Khumbu valley.

Memorable trek


Dp and his team are so friendly. On our Everest classic trek we enjoyed a lot. Our guide dp who is also the owner of Nepal Dream Path explain us the detail of the particular area. He is really an awesome guide. Equipment supplied (sleeping bags, down jackets, duffel bags) were excellent in a considerable price. I would recommend Nepal Dream Path Treks and Expedition to any prospective trekker.
