Overview

This is an outstanding trek, which passes the high valleys of the Khumbu region by exploring villages and monasteries and observing the incredible hospitality of the Sherpa people. Flying from Kathmandu to Tenzing Norgy Sherpa Sir Edmund Hillary Airport Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley up to the Sherpa capital of Namche bazzar. We have time here to acclimatise, before following the quiet trail to Thame village in the Bhote Koshi valley.

Descending to Khumjung, one can see the incredible views of Kantega and Thamserku and the Nuptse-Lhotse wall with the majestic Everest. At Khumjung we camp below Khumbila Peak , home of the patron God of the Khumbu, before continuing up the Dudh Kosi valley to Gokyo's alpine lakes and an ascent of Gokyo Ri . The views from here are tremendous, a 360 degree panorama of snow-capped peaks including Everest, Lhotse , Nuptse, Makalu and Cho Oyu .

From Gokyo, we rejoin the main trail to Everest Base Camp. Our route provides a magnificent approach to the Khumbu glacier with unbelievable vistas of the surrounding peaks and glaciers.

We follow the Khumbu glacier, first to Lobuche and then to Gorak Shep. Our camp here gives us the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar for even more fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. We also have a day to visit Everest Base Camp, at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall. Our descent will then take us to Dingboche in the Imja valley, before returning to Lukla via Thyangboche and Namche. A flight back to Kathmandu concludes a very unique and memorable trek to the roof of the world.

This trip can be done during March to May [spring] and September to December [autumn].
