|Trekking Route Options|
|Gokyo Valley-Chola Pass Trek
After a careful acclimatization approach from Lukla, we ascend Gokyo Ri in the crisp sunrise air, for 360 degree views of many of the world's highest peaks (Everest, Nuptse, Lotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu are in the top 10), and of the Nagozumba glacier, the longest glacier in the Khumbu region.
|Everest Classic Trek
(Jiri-Everest Base Camp)
The 21-day trek from Jiri to the Everest Base Camp is THE true classic. The peaceful, lush village and farm life of the lower Solu region contrast against spectacular high Himalayan mountainscapes in the Khumbu region.
Along the route you'll see a wide diversity of flora and fauna. Farming and spiritual life of a variety of cultures (including Sherpa, Rai, and Magar) are very evident. And if you're extremely observant you just might spot the tracks of the fabled Yeti!
|Lukla to Everest Base Camp Trek
This trek to Everest Base Camp, in the heart of Sagarmatha National Park, has become a rite of passage for many world travellers. The obvious goal is a close-up view of Mt. Everest (8848 m.) the world's highest peak. From Base Camp you may well be able to follow the progress of Everest ascent expedition teams, especially during the prime climbing seasons of spring and fall.
|Rolwalling Valley Trek
This valley borders with Khumbu region to the East, the Helambu region to the West and the dry Tibetan Plateau to the North. The valley becomes forested first with lush and juniper and pines at the higher elevation. The settlements of Na and Beding are Sherpa villages. Finally, the trek ends at Charikot to drive back to Kathmandu.
|Arun Valley (Salpa Pass) Trek
The Salpa Pass trail links the Khumbu (Everest) region with the unique ecosystem of the Arun Valley. The valley lies in Makalu-Barun National Park area. This trek begins at Lukla and ends at Tumlingtar. There are two passes in the valley, the Salpa Pass (3350m) and the Surkie-La Pass (3085m).
