When it comes to absolutely spectacular scenery, this trek has it all! In the high realm of Everest, you’ll trek to mystical Tengboche Monastery, explore the base camps of Ama Dablam and Everest, and enjoy stunning views from Kala Patar (18,365'). Then, crossing the snow-covered Cho La to the turquoise lakes of the Gokyo Valley, you’ll trek to the summit of Gokyo Ri for the unforgettable view of four of the six highest peaks on earth—Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. It’s arguably the most dramatic trek in the world, the adventure of a lifetime, and you can do it all without camping! Family-owned Sherpa lodges keep you comfy throughout this incredible adventure.
The Trip Leader had great knowledge of the Everest region and strong relationships with the Sherpa people. This was a life-changing trip of a lifetime! The all-time best trip ever!
