The hike up to Amadablam base camp provides the opportunity to walk from the treeline to high altitude alpine forest and the summer pastures with stunning views of the Maha Langgur range not seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp. This trek has also been planned to bypass the very popular and often crowded Thyanboche monastery area, staying at the superb Pangboche with the intention of bringing some business to the lodge owners there to have some income for a change. The highest mountain peak of all of them is Mount Everest. Standing at 8,850metres its imposing majesty has inspired awe and wonder in those who live beneath it, those that have read about it and those who have simply seen pictures of it.

What people are saying about Solukhumbu District

excellent trip! the Driver picked Me up from the hotel and took me to the airport, where we met our pilot and the tour guide who was with us the whole way. the entire trip was worth every penny! we had an unbelievable view of Mt. Everest and we got to eat breakfast at a great hotel at 12000 feet!

Everest was spectacular. Really recommended. However, the altitude is quite high, so you need to be careful of altitude sickness. However, the guides and pilots were all kind people. I was especially grateful that the guide's wife was Japanese, so she spoke a little Japanese.

A fantastic hike, wonderful scenery and a breathtaking view of Mount Everest. First-class organization. I recommend this tour and the company.

This was definitely worth the cost!! One of my favorite things I’ve done. Highly recommend it. Left me smiling from ear to ear.

Despite the delay due to the weather (in fact, thick fog occurs frequently) it was an exciting and unique experience
