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.
