This trek is through the popular Khumbu area. Going in November will be a little less crowded. Also going through Phortse gets us off the beaten path. We have the freedom to alter our route as we desire and as the group needs. The pricing here does not include food as we have found that people prefer to order there own food and find this easier. In addition, we fly on a twin otter into Lukla. Flights may get delayed by one or several days sometimes. November is better weather than October and generally has fewer delays.
