Arun Valley Gokyo Valley Trek

Arun Valley Gokyou valley trekking, a non tourist destination and the route followed by Macatney Snepe in his ‘’sea to summit’’ ascend to the Everest, is designed with sufficient acclimatization time to the altitude to increase your chances of completing the traverse into region.

Starting in the rustic east of Nepal, homeland of the Rais and other ‘middle-hill’ Nepalis, we begin our journey from Tumlingtar, landing on a grass runway next to the groves of tangerine trees. We trek along the turquoise Arun River, through the green, terraced hills of the Arun and Salpa Valleys to Solu, and continue traversing across the many high ridges that characterize Nepal’s lush middle hills. We pass through lively, thatched Rai and Sherpa villages as we head towards Lukla and the old Tibetan trading center of Namche Bazaar.

During this trio we will pass along a tranquil turquoise river viewing the diversity of the region as we change altitudes to capture jungle vegetation, terraced rice fields and snow-capped peaks along the way. Learn the ways of the mysterious Sherpa culture while taking a unique path including all the highlights of the Khumbu Region including sights of Everest, the Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri and timeless untouched Sherpa villages to create the adventure of a lifetime. Join our professionals sherpas to make this trip happen
