01Day 01We fly from Lukla via Thame Village (home of both Tenzing Sherpa and the world record holder of 21 summits on Everest – Apa Sherpa), continuing over Renjo la 5345 meters into the Gokyo Lakes watershed.

This unforgettable area is home to lakes from the altitude of 4700 – 5000 meters, spread over an area of 485 acres: the highest freshwater lakes in the world, comprising of 6 main lakes of which Thonak is the largest (160.8 acres) and deepest (62.4 meters). This region was declared a Ramsar Site in September 2007 and will overwhelm you with its beauty.

The grand sight of 6th highest peak - Cho Oyu 8201 - and the 36km glacier, Ngozumpa, is a must-see, before we turn east, back to the Khumbu Valley. In a rotation, 2-3 passengers at a time, we will spend time exploring Pheriche village or remain in the helicopter to travel towards Kalapathar at an awe-inspiring altitude of 5555 meters. Kalapathar is a vantage point from where impressive views of Mount Everest and other Himalayan giants can be viewed. From this heart-stopping perspective, you can look down at Everest Base Camp which is about 200 meters below Kalapathar. The groups will then alternate, so that everyone can experience this life-altering adventure, before a champagne breakfast in dramatic style at Kongde, the highest resort in the world at 4250 meters. Refueling at Lukla, we will head back to Kathmandu with a lifetime of memories.
