On This 21 day adventure you start from Mount Everest Base Camp and embark on a Gokyo Lakes trek. Returning via a slightly different route.
On this trek, you might be able to meet up with one of two remaining climbing sherpas from the 53 Everest Expedition. We also provide you with the privilege to stay in the Lodge of Appa Sherpa, the world record holder of the first 21 Everest summits.
We even stay at the lodge belonging to the main character of the documentary – Sherpa. He is the second person to have reached the summit of Everest 21 times and holds the world record of more than 34 summits on peaks above 8,000 meters.
Experience the hospitality of the Sherpas while enjoying views of Mt. Everest, Amadablam, Thamserku, Cho Oyu and Lhotse from the summit of Gokyo Ri or just relax around the turquoise blue water of the Gokyo lakes.
Note – Flight to Lukla and back can be delayed or cancelled due to poor visibility. We ask you to have buffer days of few days in case your flight to Lukla is affected.
