Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Spring Trekking in the Himalayas


For those after warmer daytime temperatures, blossoming flora and generally stable weather, spring is the ideal season for trekking in Nepal and Bhutan.

Spring is considered to be one of the best seasons to trek and climb in the Himalaya. There are slightly less trekkers compared to the autumn months, Everest Base Camp will be full of life due to the climbing season and the trails over high mountain passes such as the Cho La, Larkya La and Thorong La in Nepal and Shinge La in Bhutan are clear. Add to that temperatures of 16-23 degrees C during the day in the upper hills & lower mountain ranges and warmer nights - and your Himalayan trekking adventure is complete!

If you get inspired by nature in bloom, you'll be delighted to discover that the Himalaya has the highest diversity of rhododendrons in the world. Eye-catching and elegant, at lower elevations the flowers are a vibrant red but as altitude increases the colour begins shifting to pink, gradually becoming pure white – a spectacle not to be missed. 

Recommended Bhutan and Nepal treks in spring

>> See rhododendrons in full bloom on the Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek in March and April.

>> Encounter yak herders as they establish their summer encampments on trails high above the Paro & Thimbu valleys on Bhutan Dragon Kingdom.

>> Challenge yourself with the Holy Grail of trekking on Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar.

>> Follow forest trails, alpine meadows with spring flowers and high passes on the Bhutan High Trails via Laya.

>> Explore Everest Base Camp, cross high glacial passes and enjoy impressive views from Gokyo Ri in spring on our Everest Circuit & the Cho La trek.
