10 days trek at the Himalaya


It is our second trek with Hymalaya Joy company and it was as perfect as the first one. We have been walking for 10 days from Lukla up to to Gokio lake and Renjo La pass , than back via Thame, Namche Bazar to Lukla. Everything was perfectly arranged, since the day of our arrival to Kathmandu and until our safe return home.. All the accommodations on the route and in Kathmandu were excellent. Our guide, Tika was extremely knowledgable and experienced. Most important : we felt very safe. We highly recommend this company to any one who is interested in trekking the Himalaya mountains or any other place in Nepal.

Trip Note

ECO-FRIENDLY: Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take a long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order the same items food in a group which minimises the fuel used and to make a campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveller so, just leaving a footprint on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.

FLIGHT DELAY IN LUKLA: Sometimes the flight may be cancelled due to the unpredictable weather in Luka so Himalayan Joy Adventure has created an itinerary for this trek with one day free/extra day at the end of the trek. In case your flight has been cancelled more than two days, we will charter a helicopter to and from Luka to ensure your flight on scheduled towards homeland or further destination. This extra service cost will be a minimum $500 to a maximum $4000 USD dollars which you can claim from your insurance.
