The Khumbu Traverse ( 24 Days / 23 Nights ) Best Season: Mid-September to Mid - June
 

This is "the grand tour" of the Dudh Kosi river valley, the Khumbu valley and the Imja river valley. This  strenuous trek starts with that still “eye opening flight” into Lukla – a 450 meter long airstrip with a 60 m elevation difference between the two ends of the runway!  Trek through the villages of Namche, Thame, Khumjung/Khunde to Phortse, Then trek up the Dudh Kosi river valley to the Gokyo Lake at the bottom of the Ngozumba glacier. Cross over the Cho La (La = Pass) 5420 m. making a circuit of Tawache (6367 m.) and Cholatse  (6440 m.) to Dzongla. Then trek up the Khumbu valley through Lobuje to Gorakshep. Setting off from Gorakshep you ascend Kalapattar from where superb views of Mt. Everest are available and then trek back to Lobuje. A detour to Chukung in the Imja river valley and you start your journey back to Lukla via Dingboche, Thyangboche and eventually Namche Bazaar and finally to Kathmandu
Strenuous trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes, including four of the world’s highest peaks: Cho Oyu (8153 m.), Makalu (8463 m.), Lhotse (8500 m.) and Everest (8850 m.).
Breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but, culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life.
