    experience in the Everest region of Nepal. Yearly

    neighbourhood tenants of this district, the

Dream of a Trekker
  • The Gokyo valley trek is considered as a typical
    trek that is suitable for everyone. However, the
    local people of Gokyo Valley call it The Valley
    of Death and rightly so a couple of trekkers
    have endeavoured to climb Gokyo Ri speedy,
    ignored the precepts of AMS and paid the expense
    with their lives. Our schedule gives two evenings
    in Namche Bazaar for acclimatization, with the
    goal that you wont be endeavouring to do this
    trek brisk! This minimizes your shots of getting
    AMS and helps you make it securely to the highest
    point of Gokyo.

    great opportunity to witness the Ngozumpa glacier
    which is the biggest in Nepals Himalaya.
