Even the lower peaks that surround these incredible mountains are still taller than most mountain ranges on Earth.This is a 21 day trek, taking you across high alpine mountain passes. There are beautiful blue remote mountain lakes that reflect the snowcapped peaks in its calm surfaces.You will pass through dense forests of birch, rhododendron, juniper and pine while watching monkeys swinging from tree to tree. In these mountains there are many varieties of deer, lynx and even snow leopards along with blue sheep.

You will have close up views of incredible glaciers as you cross swinging suspension bridges on the way to ancient Buddhist monasteries hidden deep in the mountains. There are picturesque villages with their terraced farms that have sustained these hearty mountain people for centuries.This trip will take you by the six holy lakes of the Gokyo region, a remote place where it will seem like time has stood still over the centuries. All along the way, see the finest close-up views of Mt. Everest itself. It is 21 incredible days. The nights are spent in local tea houses where you will be able to meet the local people and spend time with them. Your presence helps to boost their fragile local economy while enjoying the mountain hospitality. This trip is moderately difficult, but while it has its strenuous moments, it also rewards you with great views as well as an experience of a lifetime.
