The opportunity to see the mighty Mount Everest (8,848m) is the kind of experience many people dream about, but few actually get to do. And on this 20 day adventure along the famed Gokyo route, you will not only get to see the highest mountain on earth, you will also get to see 3 more of the world’s 14 highest mountains as well. Those mountains include Cho Oyu (8,201m)Lhotse (8,516m) and Kanchenjunga (8,586m). However, the highlights of the trip don’t stop at those peaks. You will also get to spend several days in Kathmandu, enjoy a breathtaking flight to and from Lukla, visit several beautiful Nepalese villages, including Namche, Dragnag, Lobuche, Machherma, meet some amazing Sherpas, and see some truly incredible landscape.

The majority of this trip will involve long hikes, some as long as 7 hours. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition. However, while there are some challenging spots scattered throughout the Gokyo route, it is still a moderate level trek. And because this trip lasts nearly 3 weeks, you will be given plenty of time to properly acclimatize. Thus ensuring you have not only an enjoyable, but a comfortable and safe experience.

The entire Everest region is is like visiting heaven on Earth. There is just something about it, not just something magical, but something beyond that, something spiritual, something majestic. It is an inexplicable feeling to be in the midst of such grandness, and we will see to it that you have every chance to not only experience, but enjoy that incredible feeling as much as possible.

If you have dreamed of seeing Mount Everest, this is your chance. And you don’t even have to be an expert climber to do so! So send us a request, and join us on this 20 adventure along the unforgettable Gokyo route.

We can also lead you on another still developing hiking trek in the Everest region on this 19 day trip to the Dudh Kunda area.
