Our trek begins at the heart of the Khumbu valley and proceeds in to the Gokyo valley ‘off the beaten track'. We make our way up to the Gokyo lakes returning via a slightly different route. On this trek you might be able to meet up with one of 2 remaining Climbing Sherpas from the 53 Everest Expedition. We also provide you with the privilege to stay in the Lodge of Appa Sherpa the world record holder of 22 Everest summits. Experience the hospitality of the Sherpas while enjoying views of Mt. Everest, Amadablam, Thamserku, Cho Oyu and Lhotse from the summit of GokyoRi or just relax around the turquoise blue water of the Gokyo lakes.
Note - Flight to Lukla and back is often delayed or cancelled due to poor visibility. We ask you to have a buffer days of few days in case your flight to Lukla is affected.
