This is second famous Trekking in Everest region or alternative trek to the traditional Everest Base Camp Trek that offers magnificent view of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in the Nepal Himalayas.The image of of this region is associated with the soaring view of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an altitude of 8000m including Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible fromGokyo Ri (5483m.) above Gokyo Lake.It is one of the most remarkable feature of the trek is the view of tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2922m) located in Khumbu region.This extraordinary trek is also worthy in a sense that it offers an ample opportunity to explore the amazing destination and its impressive sight, which is beyond human imagination.

 

After a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the Adventure really begins. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting amongst the mountain people also known as Sherpa’swe stay at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything is organized in conjunction with local Sherpa guides.

 

Along the trek we will pass Buddhist monasteries with the views of Everest and other snow towering mountains getting closer by the day. We will have rest days in the villages of Namche bazaar that will allow us to explore the region and to acclimatize, which is very important. After Trekking to Gokyo Ri (5483m), we return at a leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.
