Everest Foothill trek takes you on a 6 days adventure in the green foothills below Mount Everest. If it is your first time trekking in Nepal, this is the ideal Everest region trek with spectacular views of the entire Himalayan range from East to West in Nepal. Though famous for offering the best view of Mount Everest according to Sir Edmund Hillary, this off the beaten track route is little used by trekkers and you will have the trails to yourself. Nights will be spent in the comfort of our exclusive camp.

If you are planning a trip to Nepal then "Mountain Travel Nepal" is your go-to agency. We had an amazing experience with the company and Mr. Ashok. We track the Everest Base Camp in 10 days....
We start the trek early the following morning, where a steep descend through the pine forest and paddy fields awaits. After approximately one hour we reach the Solu Khola river. From here we follow the newly established road for a little bit, before turning off on a small trail up to the village Boldok. After a steep climb above Boldok, we enjoy a simple but filling lunch. From here the trail continues steeply up through the pine forest. The occasional openings in the forest will reveal stunning views of the green Phaplu valley and Mount Numbur and Gauri Shankar to the north. After 3-4 hours from the river, we reach our camp site on the top of the ridge. From here we can get the first glimpse of the Everest massif.
Next morning, get up early to catch the first morning rays on the Himalayas. Tea and coffee will be served in your tent and you can sit in comfort and take in the beauty. After a hearty breakfast we start the day with a gradual ascend along the ridge. We pass through more pine forest shifting with rhododendron and open meadows.
We reach the camp in the early afternoon. The camp site is used by local herders for their night shelter. There are a few dried out lakes in the area, which only contain water during the monsoon. Today we have lunch in camp. Light snacks will be provided on the way. Spend the afternoon exploring the area, reading a book, or maybe you want to help preparing for the camp fire.
The following morning starts the ascend of Pikey Peak. The trail is wide and stone steps make it easy to walk, but you will most probably feel the effect of the altitude here which slows you down. We take plenty of small breaks on the way to catch our breath and enjoy the panoramic view of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, and Makalu and Kanchenjunga to the East among other iconic peaks. After enjoying the stunning views of the Himalayas, we start the descend towards Yase Bhanjyang.
Our camp for the night is located at an altitude of 3500 meters on the side of the mountain, where a big meadow provides a beautiful space for our tents, surrounded by green forest protecting us from the wind. This is a great place to light up a campfire and share epic travel stories.
