Everest Region also known as Khumbu region is the world famous trekking destinations in Nepal offers best trekking, peak climbing and mountain expedition adventure. The lore of the highest mountain in the world is magical for many people. Mt. Everest (8848m.), “Sagarmatha" in Nepali (“Higher than the sky") and “Chomolungma” in Tibetan (“Mother Goddess of the Earth") is a magnet for trekkers and mountaineers alike, but the Solu-Khumbu region has much more to offer. Incredible scenery, huge glaciers, some of the world’s most beautiful mountains, remote monasteries and fascinating Sherpa villages are among the delights that await trekkers to this area.
However, trekking in Everest region is tough and colder than many of the other popular destinations. Those who wish to see Mt. Everest up close will spend at least 4 nights above 4000m, which increases the risk of altitude sickness. Care must be taken to properly acclimatize before going on to higher altitudes. This can easily be done, as there are many small and interesting side trips along the way.
The quickest and easiest way to reach this region is by a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. However, trekking in from Jiri offers a chance to follow the original Everest route and acclimatize over a week. With sufficient time available, this less-traveled trek can be combined with any of the other Everest region treks to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking April 2013
We successfully trekked Jiri to Everest Base Camp and then back to Lukla, where we took a helicopter back to the city, all in 19 days. I admit it was tough since I had not trekked before. Still, it was an absolutely fantastic experience, I know in large part due to the care Wildpath Adventures took to ensure our safety and comfort. Thanks Raj for complete airport to airport service and for showing us around Kathmandu. Thanks to our most excellent guide who walked behind us the whole way ensuring our safety. And thanks to our porter for carrying our load ahead of us. After comparing notes with other Trekkers we met along the way, I know with certainty that we were most fortunate to have chosen Wildpath Adventures to organize and guide our trek.Soo Hee Lee

Jiri to EBC Trekking in 2013
I had a fantastic time trekking from Jiri to Everest Base Camp with Wildpath adventures. Raj really looked after us by showing us around Kathmandu and making sure that we were satisfied with his company's service. We were looked after from the moment we arrived to the time we left. The guides he provided with were some of the most experienced on the trail. Their experience, local knowledge and contacts ensured that we remained safe and provided us with options that were not available to other trekkers. I would not hesitate to recommend Wildpath Adventures to others.

Everest Basecamp Trekking 2012
I highly recommend trekking in the Himalayas- it is an amazing experience! If you would like a trek that is stress-free, then Raj is the perfect guide! Raj speaks English well (so you always know where and when you are going), and does his best to ensure his clients are always safe and happy.
Lukla to Tengboche Trek
If you ask me who to recommend to be your guide in Nepal, I would definitely say Raj.
He is a good, professional and responsible tour leader who always put the safety, well being and comfort of his group first priority.
In Nov 2010, after completing the EBC (up to Tengboche) and returning to Lukla, we were hit by bad weather and were stranded there for more than 3 days. Raj did all he could and got us out on helicopters. Mind you, there were hundreds still stranded when the last few of us got away.
Besides being resourceful, Raj is also a knowledgeable tour leader. He knows a great deal in Nepal history as well as the current affairs. It’s always enjoyable to have a chat with him. I m sure you would agree with me when you get to meet and know this good nature person named Rajan Dhungana.
