This ideal trek provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view of Everest including several other similar peaks and to explore the Buddhist monasteries settled at the world's highest elevation.

This unique trek takes you to the home of the legendary Sherpa people, on the foothill of the highest peak of the world, the Mt. Everest at 8848m. This 18 days trek follows the highly praised trekking route through the Dudh Koshi to its source the Gokyo Lake to the west of the Everest Base Camp. The excellent trek gives the benefit to summit Gokyo peak (5483m) offering a fantastic panoramic view of Cho Oyo, Everest and Makalu etc. During traveling through Khumbu Himal, Gokyo valley and pass, one is rewarded with some of the most dramatic landscapes. The trek can be treated as one of the adventurous trek in the Himalayas as it follows the route via high pass into Khumbu i.e. Cho La pass at 5330m. As we cross the Cho-La pass, we then return back to Lukla following the route through Everest Base Camp, Kala Pathar and Tyangbouche monastery, Khumjung village, Namche Bazar.
