Our Thrilling Himalayas tour is action-packed and meant for the real thrill seekers and adventure spirits who do not want to miss the chance to see the highest mountain in the world – Mt Everest. Hike with us off the crowded paths to Jiri Pikey peak (4.067 m) and absorb a 360° view of all 8000 meter mountains of Nepal. Wander on a historical path once followed by the early Everest expeditions in the 1950s/1960s and experience unspoiled culture, landscape and history of Nepal.
After this eight day trekking adventure board the rafts on Sunkoshi River and race down the river for another four days. Go on a real challenge. Do you dare?
