This journey is a tough trek of the Everest region, completing a magnificent tour of 3 high passes and ascending 5 spectacular viewpoints.
Experience the views of Chukkung Ri (5417m), Kala Patar (5554m) and Gokyo Ri (5340m), as well as enjoying the unique opportunity to visit Everest Base Camp. We fly in to Lukla, then make our way slowly up the Gokyo valley; careful acclimatisation, an unhurried itinerary and measured pace during the initial days, prove for a successful and fulfilling trek. Finally we enter the even quieter Thame Valley.
For those confident of their physical fitness a trek not to be missed. Some of the pass crossings require good weather and favourable snow conditions and if there is bad weather we may need to make some changes to the itinerary or the route, however there is enough leeway within the itinerary to cope with this.
This is a challenging trek, offering some of the most spectacular hiking experiences anywhere in the world – graded ‘Tough’ due to the sustained nature of the trip and the altitude. If all the optional extras are included it is towards the upper end of the grade and you will benefit from starting the trip with a good level of fitness.
