Retrace in the steps of Sir Edmund Hillary and legendary Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and visit ancient Sherpa villages and Buddhist communities. As a short trek in Nepal, Himalayan Friends’ Everest Highlight trek is perfectly doable for young and old! The trails lead from refreshing jungle trails to barren valleys, and the views are truly highlight of Everest.  Taking just 9 days from where 5 days of light trekking the Everest Highlight trek is also a favorite for families and couples. And with Himalayan Friends care for service an unforgettable trek in Nepal.
What can I expect from the Everest Highlight trek?
Trekking in the Everest region is always exhilarating and can be experience differently depending in which season you go. The Everest Highlight trek focusses on the views of the world’s highest mountain, the fauna and flora of the Sagarmata National Park, the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar, and the ancient Buddhist Monastery of Khumjung! Being a short trek it’s the best way to experience the Everest region in just a few days!  In Namche Bazaar various activities are available and it looks truly like trekkers paradise. Head up to the Hillary statue for selfies visit the many handicraft stores, or relax at the charming pubs and guest houses.
Many trekkers have heard about the Sherpa, but who are they exactly? Well the Sherpa people are the first who mastered high altitude survival and learned how to tame the mighty mountains. These people live and thrive in the high altitudes of Nepal and are legendary when it comes to mountain knowledge and climbing. 
During our stay in Namche Bazaar our Himalayan Friends trekking guide will take you not only to see the incredible views but also on a cultural tour through Namche the Sherpa capital. Very interesting is to visit the Sherpa museum, where the whole history of these amazing people can be seen.
