By trekking though both of the major valleys in the Everest region you can fully appreciate the spectacular glacial lakes, high alpine rises and breathtaking mountain views of the Everest region in the company of the famous Sherpa peoples. Begin your adventure with a dramatic mountain flight to Lukla. We then trek up the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar and be rewarded with your first views of Everest.
The trail to Gokyo makes a gradual ascent through the major villages of Kunde and Khumjung brfore crossing the Mongla ridge and passing the yak
grazing settlements of Dole and Machhermo enroute to to the turquoise blue lakes at Gokyo. To control the acclimatisation you will have shorter walking days on this section of the trek so you can really take your time to enjoy the magnificent views of the Ngozumpa glacier and the 8,000-metre peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. From Gokyo you descend via the vllages of Phortse and Pangboche under the shadow of Ama Dablam where you rejoin the main trail to Everest Base Camp. Your journey continues after exploring the Imja Valley at Dingboche as you ascend to Lobuje and Gorak Shep.
From here you take the two excursions to Everest Base Camp where you may be lucky enough to view climbers on the mountain and then the ascent of Kala Patar for another all encompassing view of the magnicent peaks of the Everest region. On your return you visit Thyangboche Monastery before passing through Namche Bazaar and back to Lukla airstrip.
