The ultimate circuit of the Everest Region including Everest Base Camp
This is the ultimate trek of the Everest region. Starting from the famous Khumbu Valley, home of the Sherpas, we acclimatise before following the trail taken by many of the great Everest climbers and tackle some of the most incredible passes and summits one can trek in the Himalayas. During this circular trek we are constantly rewarded by amazing views of the highest mountains in the world, glacial lakes and quiet valleys. With most of the walking above 3600m this is not for the novice, but will appeal to those who are fit and have previously trekked at altitude.

Accommodation details
Hotel & Lodges
4 nights standard hotels, 18 nights teahouses.
In Kathmandu we use a centrally-located hotel. All rooms have en suite facilities. On trek we use teahouses, most of which have twin- bedded rooms. However you should be prepared to sleep in multi-bedded rooms on the occasional night. In the last decade the quality of the tea houses and the food has improved significantly, but expect fairly basic accommodation at the highest points of the trek.
Some tea houses have showers (charged at £2-£4 per shower) and all have basic toilets.

There is no single supplement available whilst on the trek. Accommodation in Kathmandu is on a twin share basis, but single rooms are usually available from an additional cost. Please let us know as early as possible if you would like a single room while at the hotel in Kathmandu.

Culinary tour in India, finger-licking!

If you are a foodie (cmon, which one of us is not? hehe), making a cuisine tour in India is a must for you! When you think about India, I bet exotic is the first word that pops up in your head. Exotica is the very essence of this country with India being truly unique in every possible aspect: culture, traditions, lifestyle and, of course, cuisine! When it comes to traditional Indian food, it can be worth exciting and intimidating. Spices are a must in almost every dish but mind the quantity of them used in every of them. Sometimes a dish is seasoned with spices so generously, that you feel like capable of drinking the entire Indian Ocean. In this blog, we will cover some of the most popular cuisine tours in India that will not make your stomach turn :)

You can start with capturing the velvet dunes and taking photos of the snake charmers and mighty camels proudly swaying as they carry bedouins on their back. Once in a province, you will get a chance to capture and even participate in the traditional tea ceremony as well as to see the locals playing gnawa music performed on goatskin drums.
