When we propose you a classic Everest trekking trip, some travelers might understand it as Jiri to Everest base camp, but we want to make it clear to you that it is not this route, but this is the trekking trail where you explore the Everest base camp and Gokyo Lakes, summit Gokyo Ri, cross Cho La Pass on classic way. This trek also known as Everest circuit trek of Khumbu region. The trek will start same as other treks in Everest area, 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and we follow the same route as we follow Everest base camp (Phakding (2610m) to Namche Bazaar (3500m) and other days, Tengboche (3850m), Dingbuche (4350m), Lobuche (4950m), Ghorakshep (5140m) and finally Kalapatthar (5545m)). In between these days we will acclimatize at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche for 2 days to reduce acute mountain sickness. After exploring the Everest Base Camp, next day, in early morning i.e. dawn, we will cross the Cho La pass (we need to cross Cho La pass in the morning as soon as possible because in the afternoon there might be problems of rock sliding or rock falling down). On that day we will stay at Thangnak (4700m) and other days continually visit Gokyo Lake (4790m), Gokyo Ri (5360m), Dole (4200m) and very known Namche Bazaar. From Namche, our hiking will be for couple of days to get Kathmandu and conclude the trip.
This is a hiking adventures also known as Everest circuit trek because the trail makes a circuit from Namche Bazaar to Namche Bazaar after completing the high adventure journey. We will cross Khumbu and Imja Khola valleys and various Sherpa villages in the trail so we ensure you that the trip will be not only adventurous walking holiday but also cultural journey toward the Sherpa villages. Thus, Classic Everest trekking is one of the best trips for 20 days to explore entire Everest region.
