The Everest region is probably the best known of all the popular trekking areas in Nepal; however, there are still many nooks and crannies waiting to be discovered. From Kathmandu we fly to Lukla and follow the traditional route to Namche Bazaar, where we leave the main trail to Everest Base Camp and head to Thami, at the foot of Bhote Kosi Valley. We then trek towards Nangpa La, the pass on the ancient trading route that linked Tibet with Nepal. From here we explore the upper reaches of the valley before making an audacious crossing of a little-known high pass named Renjo La that leads to the Gokyo Valley. Keeping to the exploratory nature of the program there are a number of days set aside for exploration and excursions on small peaks before returning to Lukla and flying back to Kathmandu. This trek travels over demanding territory with a flexible itinerary so an open mind with a very high level of fitness and stamina are required to make the most of this trip.
