We begin our trek with a spectacular flight to the mountain strip of Lukla, the entry point to the Everest region from where we head to Namche Bazaar, the capital of this region. In the busy town of Namche Bazaar, we acclimatize for a day and a half, enjoying the culture and traditional lifestyle of the native Sherpa people before heading out towards the mountains.
For about two weeks, we explore the Everest region, ascending a number of remote high passes and vantage points to claim some of the most incredible mountain views on planet Earth. We climb for a few days in the beautiful yet challenging terrain to reach Chukkung Ri at 5,546 m from where we get to enjoy incredible views of Mount Nuptse. We then head towards Gorak Shep, Kala Patthar (5,545 m) and come face to face with Mount Everest and the Khumbu ice-fall.
Crossing over a glacier and another high pass - Cho La (5,420 m), we head for the Gokyo valley where Cho Oyu (8,153 m) and Gyanchungkang (7,992 m) dominate the skyline on the Tibetan border. We then take a rest day and, on the next day, ascend Gokyo Ri (5,360 m) for more stunning panoramic views of the entire Khumbu region. Then, we head towards southwest for our final high pass Renzo La (5,345 m). At each of the 5 vantage points -- Chukkung Ri, Kongma La, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Ri and Renzo La -- we get spectacular views of five of the world's highest 8000 m plus peaks, and also countless smaller peaks. This trek truly makes you feel like you’re on top of the world!
considered one of the best trek in this word. You may have both unbeleiveble landscapes and well known check points such as EBC, Kala Patar, Namche, Gokyo.”
The manager is very nice, always took care of us, even during the trek, he called to ask if everything was ok. We had a nice diner all together the last night in Kathmandu.The guide Narayan Rai and the porter, were really nice with us. He also know all the mountains names in Himalaya.

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
