The trek to Everest Region continues to be one of our most rewarding programs and will prove to be your greatest journey. This unique blend of outdoor adventure and cultural exploration is a great way for you to experience the Himalayan region of Nepal. On this once in a lifetime trip, your first day begins with the chance to explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the mountain town of Lukla (9350 feet). The trek begins here in Lukla as we enter the famous Everest region of the Nepal Himalayas. The trek follows trails from here that are ancient trade routes that weave around remote valleys, through tiny villages, across high mountain passes and past isolated monasteries. As the trail continues it now hugs the Dudhkoshi River and eventually takes you to the famous Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar as you enter Sagarmatha National Park, where you will be trekking throughout. From Namche, the views are unending as the peaks glitter with brilliance around you. Namche Bazaar, also known as the Gateway to Everest, opens up various trekking options in the Everest region.
One of the favorite treks in the Everest region, undoubtedly, is the Everest Base Camp Trek, which takes you to the ancient Tengboche Monastery (12,887 feet), where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ama Dablam(6856m), Everest (8848m), and Lhotse (8414m). Everest Base Camp takes you to the foot of the world's highest peak, Everest (8848m), from where you can relish the widespread view of the Khumbu Himalayas. One of the special features of a typical Everest Base Camp Trek is the hike to Kala Patthar (5550m), which allows you to have the most spectacular view of the mighty Everest (8848m) and the adjacent peaks while the beautiful rays of the rising sun touch the peaks.
Another interesting trek in the Everest region is the trek to the pristine Gokyo Lakes. Trekking through a less crowded trail and crossing a high mountain pass, you arrive at the highest freshwater system of the world at Gokyo Lakes. Gokyo Lakes is a group of six lakes seated graciously in the lap of the Himalayas. The lakes themselves are amazing to look at, but when the reflection of the surrounding mountains appears on the surface of the lakes, the view is surreal to look at. An overnight stay at the Gokyo village will allow you to get to know the Sherpa people of Gokyo valley and their cultural practices as well as their lifestyle in the rural terrain.
