Less trodden trek to Amadablam base camp trek
We fly to Lukla (2827 meters) with spectacular views of the mountains to start our Amadablam base camp trek. Further more we hike through the Dudh Koshi valley to the Sherpa settlement of Namche Bazaar (3440 meters) an unofficial capital of the Sherpas. Importantly we have separated 2 nights stay at Namche for proper acclimatisation and exploration. Furthermore trek through the lovely forest to the world renowned and sacred monastery of Thyangboche (3867 meters) is rewarding. It displays the stunning views of Everest soaring behind Nuptse, Lhotse, Amadablam, Kangtega and Tawache making a panoramic Himalayan vista. We ascend from Pangboche to the alpine camp on the flanks of the Amadablam peak base camp, away from the popular trail to savour the Himalayas’ wonder. The traditional Sherpa village of Khumjung shows you the Sherpa life style and so called Yeti scalp in a monastery.
