Trip Overview

Everest Trek with three Tops above 5000 meters

The popularity of the Everest Region has not stopped growing since the first conquest of the Top in May of 1953. Mount Everest, known as Sagarmatha to the Nepalese, Chomolungma, and local Sherpa communities, became Nepal’s first and most famous trekking destination. The region is renowned for good reason – some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world combined with the Sherpa people’s outstanding friendliness and hospitality to offer visitors the experience of a lifetime.


WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS has used his profound knowledge of the Everest Region to plan its original route. Also, it shows off the very best of the Khumbu valley. This Everest Trek begins with the cultural sightseeing of Kathmandu’s UNESCO Heritage sites and other cultural gems. After that, we enjoy another unforgettable domestic flight with breathtaking views to the Tenzing-Hillary Lukla Airstrip.

After reaching the heart of Khumbu “Namche Bazar”, often called the gateway to Everest, our way continues to Tengboche. Furthermore, here you can admire the old renowned Tibetan Buddhist Gompa (World Heritage Monastery). Through a forest of Juniper, Fir, and Rhododendron, our route takes us to the Sherpa people’s highland settlements in the middle of yak herds and typical vegetation. Our journey carries on to a first high Himalayan pass, the Kongma La at 5447 meters, that gives you the feeling of touching the clouds surrounded by a stunning panorama. We then continue to the belvedere of Kala Pathar at 5550 meters above Everest Base Camp. The second pass, Cho La at 5420 meters, brings us to the beautiful turquoises glacial lakes of Gokyo valley. Moreover, we see an impressive view of some Himalayan giants.


Trekking in the outdoors, especially in the Himalaya, provides some health benefits ranging from physical to mental to spiritual. Furthermore, it is also the best place to have enough time to discover ourselves and rejuvenate our lives. Besides personal benefits, it contributes to helping the local economy. Additionally, in 2015, a terrible Earthquake destroyed many parts of Nepal.


Finally, WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS Team welcomes you in the Himalaya. We commit to organizing small groups with high-quality services essential for flexibility, contentment, good ambiance, and precious exchanges of cultures and knowledge with our local Guides.

    I had been to Nepal before, had very fond memories of a magical place and I was hesitant to go back after 10 years and be slightly disappointed. Wild Yak Expeditions made sure this was not the case.

    From the second I landed in Nepal to the second I departed everything was properly and timely taken care of, people were always incredibly nice and adapted to my every wish with flexibility and great demeanour.

    Nepal is a fabulous country but having a local person help me organize my trip made my experience so much more pleasant. The guides were extremely helpful, well informed and nice to spend time with.

    Andrea and Norbu were personally in touch and you could immediately see how much they care for their clients which seemed more like being a guest. They also have a profound love for the land which makes it so much more special, their passion is absolutely contagious.

     I can’t wait to go back, and it will most certainly be with Wild Yak Expeditions… no doubt!

     Your happy wild-yak-expeditioner,

Each restaurant has been screen by WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS representatives to ensure that it is of suitable quality for our guests.

During Trekking: We stay in the lodges (small traditional mountain guesthouses) recommended by WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS as per defined itinerary destination. Please be aware that single rooms are not available. Though there are blankets available at the lodges, we recommend bringing your sleeping bag, as the sleeping rooms are not heated, but the dining hall will be heated in most of the lodge every evening. Showers are available at the majority of lodges at an extra cost. Please note that most of the lodges the toilets are shared, except in a few of them where we provide you with attached rooms (if available), particularly at Namche, Gokyo, and Lukla to enjoy your rest day with a shower fully.

Please note the beverages are on each participant's charge, except coffee and selection of teas that served for breakfast and in the afternoons upon your arrival, as well as some special snacks provided by WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS. Lunch packages are also available on some specific days.


All transportations in Kathmandu are by private vehicles. Flight to Lukla and back, by two-engine Otter Aeroplane.


Everest-Gokyo paths are broad and well maintained as compared to other parts of Himalayan trekking trails. While we are in Trekking, our day starts with a warm wake up tea/coffee. After refreshing ourselves, we pack our luggage and proceed for breakfast. As day sets off, considering the altitude and acclimatization, we stroll towards our next destination making frequent rest breaks to take photographs, treasure the landscape, confront the culture, and admire the fascinating mountain sceneries.

A 1 to 2 hours relaxing lunch break is taken, except when crossing the passes. After the lunch break, we will spend 2 to 3 hours more on the trail before reaching the next lodge where you will be welcomed by some warm hot tea/coffee and cookies/biscuits. Our trained Guide will accompany the group for the whole day. Before dinner, we might enjoy a short walk through the village, photographing, or chat with other group members or exceptional staff. After dinner, you will be briefed on the next day's program.


Your safety is of supreme concern while traveling with WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS. In a case of emergency, the group has a four (4)-litre oxygen bottle with a mask and regulator, a first aid kit, and 24-hour medical assistance by a high altitude medical team of doctors.

We are equipped with communication means, only to use in emergencies. WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS also works with the national rescue helicopter airlines.

For safety mainly crossing the high passes, weather forecasts are provided to the Guide regularly.

Depending on the difficulty of some itineraries, WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS will secure the route using the necessary technical gear.

Please note that the above-mentioned itinerary information is purely indicative and can likely be modified during the Trekking by your Guide, who has the authority to make such changes if deemed necessary (due to safety concerns, etc.). Every effort will be made to keep to the scheduled itinerary. However, as this is an adventure trip in remote mountain regions and at high altitudes, we cannot fully guarantee it as it is necessary to take into consideration each situation as it occurs and, consequently, adapt the program in its best way. Elements such as weather conditions, health conditions of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, among others, can all contribute to changes in the scheduled itinerary.

The Guide will ensure that Trekking runs according to the foreseen plan to the benefit of all the participants. Still, we thank you for being prepared for some flexibility and comprehension if so required.

Please check the degrees of difficulty while choosing a Trekking with WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS. The majority of the itineraries proposed in our Trekking Programs are in remote areas of the Himalaya and at high altitudes, mostly more elevated than the Alps. An excellent physical condition is necessary to appreciate the whole richness of this adventure.


Pre-Training before Trek 

Trekking is suitable for everyone! A daily walk in a beautiful landscape with a consumption of significant volumes of water, chatting with local people and understanding the culture, observing your body limits, all combine to make much healthier your body and mind than they ever have been before.

Before you embark for your Everest 3-Tops Trekking, WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS recommends a regular aerobic exercise, including some stretching exercises for a couple of hours per week. Ideally, it would be best to concentrate on cardiovascular fitness, build excellent stamina, and undertake a bit of strength training to be more efficient in the mountains. It is worth going at least once a week for a 3 to 4-hour hike, which already familiarizes your body to sustain the Himalayas ' long-time effort. The fitter you are, the faster and more quickly you will get the trail, acclimate, and enjoy the trekking days.


WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS proposes a simple grading system that gives you a first idea of the difficulties of the Trekking for which you might apply and enables you to determine which is the best for you.


A moderate trekking grade takes into account the following factors: 

  • An altitude up to 5500 m above sea level
  • An average trail inclination of about 30%-45%; some sections may consist of loose, sandy, gravel ground and boulders
  • An average of 400 to 800 elevation ascent a day (especially when crossing passes)
  • The capacity to walk comfortably on glacier moraines
  • A trail may be rough paved, loose dirt, slippery, in landslide area, icy or snowy (in some parts you might be assisted by the guides)
  • The aptitude for walking at least 4-7 hours per day (longer days when crossing the passes 8-9 hrs.)

It requires the following skills from each participant: 

  • Good stamina, to walk for several hours at a sustained walking pace in a high altitude environment during several subsequent days
  • You are familiar with assessing obstacles and hazards along the trail, walk confident (depending on the trail conditions, you may need some help in individual sections, especially while crossing the passes)
  • You can carry a small personal backpack (4 to 5 kg)
