This trek gives you the grand tour of the famous Khumbu Area. This is a strenuous trek leading to Gokyo Lake and over the Cho La Pass at 5368m leading into the Khumbu valley above Lobuche. The trail continues up to Kalapattar and then back to Lukla via Thengboche and Namche Bazaar.
Trekking in the Everest area is great experience, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colourful festivals and monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery and the legend lives on in the Khumbu.
