Trip Detail

Trekking through the Everest region of Nepal is all time classic mountain journey, and is a place that most people want to explore at some point in their lives. The Khumbu, as the region is known to the indigenous Sherpa people combines magnificent mountain scenery and a fascinating Buddhist culture. We take a circular route, crossing the high Cho La Pass (5400m) to visit all the major settlements and view points of the region.

There is plenty of excitement from the outset, with our mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, offering extensive views of the entire Nepal’s Himalaya. We follow the Dudh Kosi River to Namche, the ancient Tibetan trading settlement and Sherpa ‘Capital’. There is plenty of time to acclimatize and explore the beautiful Thame valley and the villages of Khunde and Khumjung where Sir Edmund Hillary established his first school.  To enter the broad, arid Gokyo Valley we continue to follow the Dudh Kosi and reach Gokyo village well acclimatized.

This is vital as we ascending of Gokyo Ri (5357m), with arguably the best views of Everest to be had from anywhere in the Khumbu. Crossing the snow covered Cho La brings us to the main Everest Valley and we trek to historic Everest Base Camp, the dream for many dedicated trekkers. There is also the option to ascend Kala Patar (5545m), the popular walking summit which is the closest vantage point to Sagarmatha, the original Nepali name for Everest. Descending from Gorak Shep, we head down to Tengboche, Namche retracing our steps to Lukla. Our return flight to Kathmandu requires a breathtaking take off, and we allow a spare day in Kathmandu just in case of poor weather and a possible delay.
