Introduction to Everest Thame Legendary Trek
Everest Thame Legendary trek offers a clear picture of the unique cultural and traditional lifestyle of the Sherpa tribes living in the thin air zone of Nepal. Thame is a small Sherpa village located in the western corner of Khumbu Valley in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal. And this Sherpa village is near the border of Tibet.
It was the old route to trade with Tibet. Thame is home to some Everest climbers. It is also home to Ang Rita Sherpa, who holds ten times a record of scaling Mount Everest without oxygen. Ang Rita Sherpa is also known as “Snow Leopard.”

Sherpas, a mountainous village in the Khumbu region, are of Tibetan origin, which migrated hundreds of years ago to the south of the Himalayas and are known for high-altitude mountain climbing guides. People in this area welcome guests with a smile on their faces. Thus, during this trek, you will explore Sherpa culture, customs, and traditions. Along this route, you can enjoy stunning views of the world’s tallest mountains around Himalayan villages; Everest, Lo Tse, Napte, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku.
Trek away from the crowd
Everest Thame Legendary Trek takes us from Lukla to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar and then walks far to Thame, away from the crowded road, where the air is very thinner and colder. From this small settlement, we walk to the village of Thame, the old Tibetan salt trail.
Sherpa’s ancestors were also Tibetans and came from Tibet hundreds of years ago, so their lifestyle, culture, traditions, and religion are very similar. This program is for those who are looking for adventure and for those who want to enjoy the experience of the high mountain and being among the Sherpa community.
Everest Thame Legendary Trek is a combination of easy to medium grades of the trek. Trekkers have to walk an average of 5 to 6 hours per day. Anyone who has a proper fit without any prior experience can walk through this trail. But the trekking experience will be astonishing as you pass these trails. Our Trek Guides will ensure that we take a comfortable pace on the trail. And you will have Sherpa’s support at every step. The highlight of this trek is to reach the famous Sherpa village of Thame.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
