Everest Region Trekking is the second most popular trekking area in Nepal. It would be probably the most popular destination but it is more expensive and difficult to get to Solukhumbu than to the Annapurna. To get  to Everest, you must either walk for a week or fly to Lukla, a remote mountain airstrip where flights are notoriously unreliable. Solukhumbu justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world‘s highest mountain (8848m), but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The nominal goal of the Everest trek is the Everest Base Camp at an elevation of about 5340m(29,035feet). You cannot see the Everest from the base camp, so most trekking groups only climb Kalapatthar where a dramatic view of Everest is accessible. While trekking to less ambitious destinations such as Namche Bazaar, the administrative head –quarters of the Khumbu region, Khumjung or Thame, which are more typical Sherpa villages or Tengboche monastery, from Tengboche you will vibe an excellent view of Everest and its more spectacular neighbour Ama Dablam (6856m).

The route parts with the classic Everest Base Camp Trek at Namche Bazaar and heads west up the Dudh Koshi valley towards Gokyo Lakes and the trekking peak of Gokyo Ri. Expect quiet trails that allow you to focus on the sheer natural beauty of your surrounds – a much more varied and verdant landscape than on the classic trek.

Because of the route’s circular nature, you will not have to retrace your footsteps on the return leg of the trip as you would have done on the standard base camp trek. After spending some time relaxing at the turquoise glacial lakes you will summit Gokyo Ri only to be blown away by some of the most stunning views of Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m).

From there you will ascend one of the iconic ‘Three Passes’ in the region – Cho La pass – over which you will re-join with the main trek up to Gorak Shep. You will have the opportunity to visit the trekker’s photo point at Everest Base Camp before setting out on the trek up Kala Patthar the next day – another iconic viewpoint in the region.
