Everest Circuit Trek
Hike the trails of this venture like the local folks who live most of their lives on these huge mountains, and we get to enjoy the hidden splendors of the Himalayas at a tempo that leaves us breathless for each curve of the trail that we turn; there’s so much of beauty and culture in the Everest region to savor. Arguably said, this trip can well be considered to be one of Nepal’s most legendary adventures in the outback of Nepal’s vast wilderness. ‘Everest Circuit Trek’’ should be your ‘must do’’ option on your list when planning for an extraordinary holiday of exceptional purpose. It’s a decision you’d never ever regret…
Our trek begins with a virtual mountain sky tour that’s a thrill from the moment you board your twin otter plane to the Lukla airport built through a trust by the legendary Sir Edmund Hillary – the first climber to conquer Mt. Everest. Our hike takes us across awesome landscapes, with daunting and celebrated peaks, narrow ridges and bustling villages with a whole lot of friendly inhabitants who give you warm smiles that warm your heart in these cold regions as you battle with the elevations. We follow an olden path through tiny scattered villages across sprawling valleys where the views are heart beaters; we begin by the banks of the Dudh Kosi River into the Khumbu capital of Namche – a virtual gateway into the Everest region. From hereabouts, we head through some pretty villages that include Tengboche, Khumjung, and Lobuche etc. before we make a beeline for EBC as we get our first glimpse of the Khumbu glacier ice falls, and the sheer size stops the heart beats for a moment as we gaze at it in amazement; it is from these dangerous icefalls that expeditions head down to the mighty Everest.
We then head up even further to Gorakshep which is our launch pad for the famous Kalapathar where the views of some of the highest peaks in the world stay in our thoughts for a lifetime. We then cover the circuit by heading east up through the Cho La pass after which we head north to the glistening glacier lakes area of Gokyo that connects us into our crossover of the Renjo La pass, finally completing our wonderful objectives before we descend down through lively villages to soak up the lovely colors, sights and the life beats of typical Sherpa village culture, making this an ideal conclusion to ‘Trekking the Everest Circuit’’… the Himalayas of Nepal have changed many a life for those who walked its paths…it may possibly change the course of yours - for a better tomorrow.
