This 18 day trek provides the opportunity to experience the best that this region has to offer in a reasonably short time, from the incredible mountain scenery provided by the highest peaks on earth, to its fascinating people and culture. We begin by spending a day acclimatising at Namche Bazaar with optional small hikes included, before exploring the Sherpa villages of Khunde and Khumiang. From there we set off towards Everest Base Camp via the Kala Pathar Everest view point with the journey continuing to the Chola Pass and the stunning Gokyo Lake.
