Highlights

 
     
    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.
