This is a fantastic trek, visiting all of the high valleys of Khumbu with extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley. We then reach Gokyo Lakes where the Khumbu range is reflected in the emerald green water below, and an optional excursion to Gokyo Ri with stunning views of Makalu and Everest may cause a slight detour.
From there you will head for the Everest Base Camp trail and the rocky summit of Kalapathar, and its unrivaled close view of Mt. Everest and its giant neighbors. After accomplishing this feat you will trek back through the Khumbu valley to Lukla for a flight back to Kathmandu. Our return journey takes us to Tengboche monastery, the most important center of Buddhism in the Everest area, before descending to Lukla to fly back to Kathmandu the next day.
