The original route to the Everest trekking region initiates from Jiri but now most of the trekkers prefer to a stunning flight to Lukla (2850m) from where the trek begins. While trekking from Lukla we will be surrounded by the breathtaking snow peaks and the trail is dotted with sacred Tibetan Buddhist Mani stones, colorful prayer flags and the occasional stupa (representing the mind of Buddha). The winding Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers are beautiful glacier-fed aqua blue, combined by many tributaries supporting waterfalls. Gradually we will reach to bustling Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar, to the most revered Tengboche Monastery, to crystal-clear Gokyo Lake, stunning Everest base camp and many other fantastic sites in the Everest region. On the way, we will share the trail with Yak trains and other exotic trekkers.
