Lobuche is ideal as a last big trekking peak challenge, as it offers a series of tops all along the ridge.

TRIP EXTENSION IDEAS
While in Nepal there are various interesting and exciting options to pursue either before or after your trek or tour.

The flight lasts about an hour and takes you from the Kathmandu valley, over the Khumbu region and culminates with the unforgettable view of Everest herself.

Exciting option of Rafting & Chitwan National park–One of the oldest and popular National Park in Nepal and in whole Asia, one can find more than 43 species of mammals in the park. The park is especially renowned for the endangered one-horned Rhinoceros, the Royal Bengal Tiger and the fresh water Gharial Crocodile along with many other common species mammals, reptiles and over 450 species of birds. You can take an extension trip from 2 to 4 days.

Bungy Jumping-Imaging a bridge over a 160m from tropical gorge with the Bhote Koshi, one of the world’s wildest rivers raging below…Now Jump.


This may be the most spectacular Bungy Jump on the planet. This remarkable 500ft. (160m) drop into the Bhote Koshi River gorge on the Nepal / Tibet border is the longest free fall in the world.

A drive of 3 hours (100km) from Kathmandu to within 12 km of the Tibet border to reach the Ultimate Bungy Jump spot. The unlimited Bungy Jump takes place on a 166m wide steel suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River, altitude about 3600ft.

Nagarkot- The ridge (2174 m) offers possibly the best display of the Himalaya including if you are lucky, a glimpse of a dark shape in the back that is Everest - while remaining in the proximity of the valley. Sunrise view from here is truly magnificent.

Dhulikhel- The small quiet town, known for its traditional crafts, lies 30 km east of Kathmandu at an altitude of 1470 m. Climb a little to see the mountains, from Cho Oyu in the east to Himalchuli in the west. It is a small Newari town where ancient cultures are still religiously maintained. It’s easy access, stunning sunsets and the many side treks make it a popular destination.
