Located in between Mount Everest and Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, Khumbu Glacier is also the largest glacier in Nepal. Trekkers encounter it on the final trail to the base camp. The glacier has a huge icefall which is called the Khumbu Icefall. Furthermore, it is one of the riskiest challenges for those who are on their way to the Everest summit.

We booked this trip very last minute & I'd contacted a number of tour guides. Raju was very quick with communication & helped create a bespoke tour, offering advice on what to see in our limited 5 days: Kathmandu, everest base camp helicopter tour. raju was great with the kids, finding things they were interested in & was an interesting guy to chat to on our complimentary dinner & hiking. They really could not do enough to try & help: we had hotels, airport transfers, Kathmandu tour, buses, internal flights, helitour & PCR tests organised for us in a matter of 48 hours. Even when we changed our minds over plans, they were perfectly flexible to accommodate us. A really good Nepali company to use. We'll be back!
