Happy Land Trek welcomes you to this beautiful journey to the Khumbu region. So explore the base camp trek to the highest peak of the world Mt. Everest, perhaps one of the most sought trekking destination in the whole world. The exploration of Khumbu region through this trek enables the trekkers to take a glimpse at the world’s most beautiful mountains, the friendly Sherpas, ancient monasteries as well as diverse wildlife in the Sagarmatha National Park.

We move to Gokyo(4,800m) and then to Lobuche from where we will reach the esteemed Everest Base Camp situated at the backdrop of some of the world’s highest mountain including Mt. Cho Oyu(8,156m), Mt. Lhotse(8,591m), Mt. Makalu(8,470m) along with several other peaks. The view from the Cho La is extraordinary with the 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains.
Our course of the journey is rather simple. We start with a short flight to Lukla from Kathmandu, from where we will trek to Namche Bazar- the gateway to Everest region. From there we will move to Gokyo Lake and acclimatize to the altitude. Moving up to Cho La we will then descend down to Lobuche(4,940m) and reach Everest Base Camp(5,346m).
