This trek was fantastic as we had the most beautiful views of Mount Everest and other mountains without having to walk on the crowded EBC Trail. The walk from Machhermo to Gokyo has some of the best views. I was smitten by the awesome sights of peaks, glaciers and the alpine lakes that i forgot about my physical pain and exhaustion. The trek was tiring but the sights were worth it. We were rewarded with clear weather throughout our trip, so we enjoyed brilliant views of the whole landscape. The amazing view from Gokyi Ri is forever etched in my mind. I am grateful to my guide (Baburam) and porter (Thule) for helping me reach my goal. I wouldn’t have made it had I trekked on my own. Also thanks to Naba for being helpful and accommodating while planning our trip. From the time we arrived to our final departure, Third Rock’s service was exemplary. Will definitely use their services again!
