Let me tell you about the trip! Dudh Kunda Lake is one of the best kept secrets of the Lower Everest Region. It is one of the few places where you can get right to the base of a mountain within couple of days and come back with amazing pictures of high-altitude lake. This trek will offer you breathtaking views of the eastern Himalayan Range, and world highest Mount Everest (8848.86 mtr). If you like the solitary hike this unique trek is best for you as there will be very few people on the trail besides your trip mates. You will be able to experience the famous Sherpa culture and their warm hospitality of Eastern Nepal. Well this trek takes us 6 days to complete from Kathmandu. Dudh Kunda Trekking route will take you through the classical trekking routes of Mount Everest Base Camp, passing through the river valleys, slender ridges, and lusty hills to the mountains which looks quite close.
