This trek, with diverse landscapes and scenery from Jiri to the Everest Base Camp via Gokyo/ Tshola, is one of the most popular and outstanding treks after entering the Khumbu region.
It offers stunning attractions, including a colorful local culture, traditional villages, and a wide range of flora and fauna. Trekking through the Solukhumbu area, you will visit the charming villages of Junbesi and Ringmo and traverse over the great Lamjura pass with excellent views of the high, snow-capped peaks. You can take the opportunity to learn more about the Tibetan Buddhist culture for which this area is known.
The Everest trek involves a great deal of uphill and downhill walking and gives you an opportunity to observe the daily activities of the local people and their traditional way of life that has been preserved and practiced for thousands of years. This trip also gives you a chance to climb Kalapathar, the highest point reached on this trek and one of its highlights, which offers breathtaking panoramic scenery of the giant, snowy mountains and of Mt. Everest, which seems to be a stone’s throw away. After a memorable time in the high valleys and mountains, a smooth, sweeping flight brings you back to Kathmandu.
