Description

For 18 amazing days, I would like to guide you from Kathmandu to Lukla to Everest base camp to Gokyo and back!

The views, the feelings, the sheer magnitude of visiting Mount Everest (8,848m) is an experience nobody could ever forget. In the heart of the Himalayas in Nepal, there is so much you can see and do. That is why on this trip I would like to give you a varied adventure. So on this trip, we will begin by picking you up at Kathmandu airport. From there, you will get not one, but two days to explore the wonderful Nepalese capital. We will even take you on a city tour on the second day!

Afterwards, you will get to enjoy the famous Lukla – Kathmandu – Lukla flights. While less than 40 minutes, the views and the experience of these flights are truly truly memorable.

You will get to visit a number of fantastic spots during this trek. Some examples include the following.

  • Namche Bazaar

  • Tengboche 

  • Pheriche

  • Lobuche

  • Phakding

  • Khumjung

The main highlights of this trip however are Everest base camp and Gokyo. In the case of base camp, we will also visit Kalapatter (5,545m), which will enable you to get some great views of the mighty mountain. For Gokyo, you will also get to visit the Gokyo peak (5,450m) as well.

Since we will be trekking for approximately 4-6 hours a day, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

This 18 day trek from Kathmandu to Gokyo, with time at Everest base camp is an incredible journey. To experience it for yourself, just send me a request.

I also lead a shorter, 12 day trek that will take you from Kathmandu to Everest base camp and back.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
