Description

Join me on a remarkable journey through the breathtaking terrain of Nepal on a 3-day trek among the valleys of Gokyo and Khumbu, where the ever-present Everest looms large.

The trails of the Himalayas will lead us to other prominent peaks such as Ama Dablam, with its striking 6,812-meter summit, and Lhotse, which at 8,516 meters is the third-highest summit in the world.

Resting in the shadows of the iconic Mount Everest are the ethnic Sherpa people who are indigenous to the region and have infused their culture into the mountains. Get to know their fascinating customs and traditions.

Wandering the winding trails in spring, we’ll witness the blooming flora that colours the valleys and slopes. While the beautiful Buddhist monasteries infuse the smell of incense into the air.

We will discover the Gokyo Valley, where lovely green pastures flourish for yaks to graze, and where pristine lakes rest. It also features thick oak forests and gushing waterfalls. At the end of this valley, we’ll also get to see the Cho Oyu mountain.

Then we’ll get to know the Khumbu Valley, which offers some of the best views of the tallest mountains on Earth, especially Everest.

Then we will have the chance to pass through the ancient streets of Kathmandu and explore this fascinating city.

In addition, during this trek, we’ll ascend to the summits of Kalhapathar (5,643 meters) and Gokyo Ri (5,357 meters).

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the majestic mountains of Nepal on a 3-week trek that includes the valleys of Gokyo and Khumbu.

We summited Ojos del Salado on December 8th, 2023. We where a small and nice group of 3 mountaineers and 2 guides. Gaston was a very friendly senior guide. Very helpful was his admirable experience as a mountain guide. He provided a reasonable and balanced program consisting of acclimatization hikes, driving and rest days. Explore-Share was the only provider who offed me this expedition for a reasonable price at suitable dates and assisted very well in finding the right guide. It was an unforgettable trip I can recommend to everybody, who loves mountaineering and outdoor adventures.

We loved Gaston - he was very nice - BUT - one of the team members was not prepared - at all - for this type of climb which significantly hampered the performance of the other team members. I would STRONGLY encourage a stronger process of weeding out those who have no business signing up for such a climb - I will admit, my entire experience was 'ruined' because of the weak climber - we had to take long, long, long breaks in order for her to catch up making the rest of us extremely cold - it was so unfortunate - additionally, I would suggest a higher hiker to guide ratio - since we were required to carry our own gear to the high camp - and one of the members was not strong enough to pull their own weight - this added additional burden to the other climbers! I am so frustrated that due to the lack of training, responsibility, and knowledge of one climber it ruined the entire experience for the rest of us!

I recommend Gaston as an example of a first rate mountain guide. Very attentive to his clients and an excellent chef. I have never been so well looked after on an expedition. Thank you all very much.

The trip to Aconcagua with Gastón was really nice. Gaston was a great guide and we all learned a lot from him. In addition to his mountaineering skills he is an excellent story teller and we enjoyed his company a lot. It was unfortunate that we were not able to summit, but I was expecting that may be the case with weather so I was not disappointed. All in all, I was really pleased of the service, food, wine, company, mountain. I can not think of anything bad to say.

Gaston is the most experienced guide and trustworthy person that I've ever met in my life. We summited Aconcagua in 9 days and it was the best adventure in my life. Definitely recommend!
