HIMALAYAN INDIAN SUB CONTINENT – $6000.00 pp estimate

The perfect trek for those who wish to avoid the busier trails in the Everest region, Nepal but still gain those stunning views of Mount Everest.

Trekking slowly through Sherpa villages and yak pastures we emerge into the stunning Gokyo Valley with its beautiful lakes, and from where we ascend Gokyo Ri for one of the finest views of Everest and surrounding peaks including Cho Oyu in Tibet.

From our remote high camp west of Gokyo we prepare for the highlight of the trek, the crossing of the Renjo La.

The views of Everest in Nepal are incredible as we weave our way to the top of the pass at 5400m, before our descent to Mirlung along a rarely trodden trail where we are unlikely to see other trekkers.

Undeniably trekking at its best in the Everest Nepal region.

Tour Brief Outline

A compulsory gear briefing with Magic Adventures is held approximately two months before the trip commences (to be advised closer to time)

In Kathmandu day one, you will be met by your local group leader and transferred to the Radisson hotel. Remainder of the afternoon at leisure. A pre-trek briefing will be given around 5pm where arrangements will be made for the distribution of your kit bag, sleeping bag and down/fibrefill jacket. Evening drinks are held in the hotel for all Magic Adventures clients arriving today. Drinks and snacks will generally be served from 6:30 pm until 7:15pm, and this is a great opportunity to get acquainted with your fellow group members before heading out to dinner.

A typical day, you will be woken with a cup of tea brought to your tent around 6:30am, followed by a small bowl of warm water for washing. Before breakfast you pack your gear into your kit bag which is then taken by the pack‑animals or porters and will not be available to you until you reach camp that afternoon. After a wholesome breakfast we are usually on the trail between 7.30 – 8am, depending upon the duration and nature of the day’s walk. We will walk for around 3‑4 hours and then generally break for lunch for about 1 hour.  The afternoon walk is generally a little shorter and camp is usually reached by around 3.30 ‑ 4.30 pm. Once we have reached camp and the kitchen is set up, afternoon tea will be prepared. From then until dinner there is time to rest or explore the surrounding area. Dinner is usually served between 6‑7 pm.

Twin Otter aircraft is the usual mode of transport to and from Lukla. This service is fairly dependable, however in case the flights are cancelled due to mountain weather conditions, World Expeditions will charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight connections. The helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m, while the Twin Otter can fly if the visibility is 5000m as per the Civil Aviation Rules. The cost of the helicopter is payable directly to our Kathmandu office in the event that this service is utilised.

Final night’s Celebration Dinner.
