TRIP OVERVIEW

This custom trek explores the high mountain villages of the Everest region and ventures to the lesser visited Gokyo and Thame valleys. Touching down in Kathmandu, we stay in a quiet residential neighborhood with our guiding partner’s family. Once acclimated, we take a short, scenic mountain flight to Lukla, the jumping off point for our trek. Our route heads up the valley to the famed mountaineering village of Namche and then veers off the main Everest base camp route. We explore the high alpine lakes of Gokyo and Gokyo Ri before ascending Renjo La and venturing to the remote Thame valley. This is truly the trip of a lifetime trekking in the Himalaya, gaining spectacular views of the highest peaks in the world and experiencing traditional Sherpa culture and hospitality.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Staying at our Sherpa family home in Kathmandu.

  • Getting off the main trekking route to visit less-frequented, traditional Sherpa villages and remote Buddhist monasteries. 

  • Trekking to the spectacular high lakes region of Gokyo and up over Renjo La with incredible views of Everest.

ACTIVITY LEVEL

This challenging trekking journey is rated ‘4+’ on a scale of 1-5. The activity level on this custom journey will depend on the route we design for your private group. The trails are generally well-maintained and heavily traveled, with a number of rock steps, several suspension bridges, and some steep, narrow sections with exposure and fixed ropes. Although the actual distances traveled are moderate, the high elevation, dust, strong sun, and basic level of amenities on this trek make it more challenging.
