Everest Circuit Trek

By Nepal Nomad Trekking
We have two days in Kathmandu to experience one of Asia's most ticking cities before hopping on a flight to Lukla, the starting point of our trek. We follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar and then trek into the Gokyo Valley. The trail ascends gradually and we enjoy a series of short trekking days, to ensure proper acclimatization, walking beside the moraines of the Ngozumpa glacier and turquoise lakes to reach our lodge in Gokyo. From here we can climb Gokyo Ri at 5360m to view all of the region's 8000m peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu which display a panorama that punctuates the breath. From Gokyo, we ascend and scramble across the Renjo La, dramatically back-dropped by the Everest ranges which are the highlights of our trek. We enter the Bhote Kosi valley and descend through yak grazing pastures to Thami and back to Lukla for our flight to Kathmandu.

These tend to be longer treks and climb with some more difficult days, some of which may involve walking at increased altitudes and more difficult terrain.

  • Whilst in the mountain, accommodation options are limited so please do not expect the Ritz! Nepal Nomad use simple family run lodges, with a large sociable central dining area and a cozy chimney burning fire. Accommodations are on a twin share basis and we recommend you use your own sleeping bag. Lodges and tent in Island Peak climbing tend to have shared bathroom facilities and you may not always have access to a shower. Despite the lack of facilities, these lodges certainly have a rustic charm, most are blessed with spectacular views and being family run operations, they offer a great insight into the daily life of the Mountain people.

  • Itinerary designed to ensure there is plenty of times for adequate occurs as a result of acclimatization and cases of mountain sickness are rare.

  • Equipment List:
  • The following gives you a general idea of the trekking equipment and clothing needed for this trek. This is a porter-supported trek. Two clients share one porter. We will supply you a trek duffel bag where you keep your heavy items and this bag is carried by the porter. You will need to bring your own daypack to be carried by you. In the daypack, you can put money, important documents, water bottle/bladder, camera, toiletries, sunscreen, notebook, etc. The weight limit for Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flights is 15 kg or 33 pounds. This is combining both the duffel bag and the daypack. If you exceed this limit, you will have to pay an additional fee. When this happens, sometimes the airline sends your bag in later flights and this can be very problematic for many reasons. So, we recommend you to pack as carefully as you can and not exceed the weight limit. You can leave your non-trekking stuff at the locker facility in the Kathmandu hotel.

This is my second trip with Nepal nomad and Sarba. I had done the EBC route alone 5 years back and did it again this time with my two teens.
As always, Sarba ( the owner) is extremely conscientious . He was worried about our kids and how they would handle the cold. We received clear and relevant tips on what to do and what not to. Right from the time we booked to the time we returned home, he was always available by all means of communication, took care of things in advance for us and generally looked after our comfort as best as he could given the weather.
Since we had booked a private tour, he customized it for us how we wanted it and was very flexible with the itinerary.
He is extremely customer friendly, really caring and it’s a pleasure to do a trip with him.
His rates are half of the western operators.

All my future Nepal trips would be with Nepal nomad.
Would really recommend this company to anyone thinking of going there.
