Following in the footsteps of the early Everest explorers, this trek provides a unique opportunity to visit some of the more remote areas of the Khumbu region which are not so frequented by trekkers, to cross 2 high mountain passes and climb 3 peaks all over 5000m.

Detailed Itinerary

From Lukla we ascend the Khumbu, spending time at Namche Bazaar and Tengboche underneath Ama Dablam before trekking to Gorak Shep, Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. Climbing over the Cho La we descend into the Gokyo Valley where we climb Gokyo Ri above the turquoise waters of the Gokyo lakes. Finally we trek over the little-frequented Renzo La and down the Thame Valley and return to Lukla. This is our hardest Everest trek (excluding our Trekking Peak trips) and is recommended for experienced trekkers only.
