How to prepare for this journey?


We like to make our journeys accessible to participants of all levels of physical fitness. On this journey we don’t hike everyday, but most days you can expect 1-3 hours of hiking. The hike up to the nunnery in the Everest region will take around 8 hours at a moderate pace, including breaks & lunch. The terrain is not too strenuous. As an alternative to this hike, it is possible to be led on horseback for all or part of the way, or to even get to the nunnery by jeep – please inquire with us about the best option for you!


We will be staying in the best possible locations throughout the journey ranging from high-end eco-resorts to Monastery guesthouses with all basic facilities.
