Tour Details

Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes is a pristine combination of beautiful glacial lake complex surrounding Gokyo valley leading to the base of the majestic Mt. Everest (8848 m). This trek treats us with some amazing landscape, natural view, and the wholesome delights of the Everest region.

This is a high altitude trek where you walk in off-the-beaten-paths across the typical Sherpa villages on the lap of giant mountains including Mt. Everest. On this trek, you first enter the Sherpa Homeland ( Namche Bazar) and gradually ascend to the stunning Gokyo Valley to the glacial lakes under Cho Oyu( 8153m). This trail offers the magnificent views of Majesty Himalayas including, Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, etc.

Plus, on this trek, you have the benefit of crossing the Cho La Pass (5,420 meters). Although you cross the high pass, this trek is easily doable by the person with average fitness and proper preparation. This is a moderate trek that takes you the mesmerizing Gokyo Ri- a famous vantage point for the Everest View from a different perspective.

After encountering the glistening glacial lakes (4750 meters) in the Gokyo valley you follow the trail to Lobuche and join the popular Everest Base Camp trek route to reach Kala Patthar- the popular destination for the best view of Mt. Everest.

It is my up most pleasure to review this Adventure! The team in in Nepal couldn’t have been more helpful. the weather was very kind to us for the 18-day Everest Base Camp trek, Without our guide lhakpa rita sherpa we would have been lost and he was a total star for the whole trek, unassuming but very experienced and constantly aware of and dealing with any issues that cropped up.
The porters were invaluable during the whole trip they were always cheerfully to mop us up when we were slipping and sliding all over the place! The health checks kept a discreet eye on our condition every day and this is critical for anyone suffering AMS. I have no hesitation in recommending lhakpa rita sherpa a real star and life long friend after this
