We pick you up in the early morning and escort you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. Here, we catch a flight that will take us to the Lukla airport in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The region is probably one of the most loved and frequented trekking regions in Nepal. It takes the pride of having the world’s highest mountain in the world i.e. The Everest. The flight to Lukla is full of magnificent mountain views. As you land in Phakding, meet our remaining crew in Lukla for your journey ahead. From Lukla, we follow a trail that drops down to Dudhkoshi River and goes up gradually along a well-marked path to Phakding. Tonight, spend your time at a guesthouse in Phakding.

The days are going to get more interesting ahead. As we leave Phakding, we follow a trail that traverses through the Sagarmatha National Park.

We cross the pass and walk along a beautiful trail full of dense rhododendron and oak forests. It is a wonderful experience to walk in the shadows of dense trees with some energizing views of mountains accompanying you throughout. We continue our walk until we reach Dole. Tonight, spend your time at a guesthouse in Dole.

We wake up and enjoy breakfast with some amazing views of the Himalayas on sight. We follow a trail towards the Gokyo valley. We climb uphill slowly and gradually relishing the incredible views of Himalayan vistas.

Upon arrival, explore the area that would also help you acclimatize yourself with the rising elevation. Tonight, spend your time at a guesthouse in Macchermo.

After breakfast, we continue with a trail to Gokyo valley. We walk slowly and gradually hydrating ourselves with plenty of water.

Tonight, spend your time at a guesthouse in Namche.

After enjoying some impressive views of mountains in the Everest region of Nepal from Namche, we initiate our journey back to Lukla.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.

Incredible Scenery and Service

I trekked up to Basecamp with Ram and his Heaven Himalaya team last year and had incredible Scenery and Service. The scenery is just awesome, and Ram took amazing care of everyone in our group. He kept us all entertained and motivated and most importantly, healthy. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Best Experience Ever, Thank You Ram

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the mountains. We made the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region. I can certainly say that it was the ultimate outdoor experience we have ever had, simply astonishing. I'm also very sure that a great part of enjoying that experience the way we did was thanks to our guide (Ram). He's a highly expert in the mountains and more importantly a great person with a big heart and always a smile to offer.

Everest Base Camp Trekking

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek back in Nov’18 and it was an awesome experience. My guide, Ram was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and professional. He was very good in all the preparations that he made and was very attentive to my needs. He was very thorough explaining all parts of the trek and he took good care of me, especially I was exhausted on the last day of the trek, he pushed and helped me out to ensure I made it to EBC. I highly recommend going with Ram if you ever wanted to do any treks in Nepal.
