Gokyo Lake / Everest base camp

The Gokyo Lakes region is yet another popular trek which takes us high above the tree line, with stunning views of the huge Himalayan peaks including Cho Oyu, Lhotse Shar, Nuptse, Makalu and Everest. Besides, huge glaciers, lakes, monasteries and old traditional villages makes this trip worthwhile.

We start our trek from Lukla following the Dudh koshi valley then to namche to acclimatise and explore the surrounding area like Thame- birth place of famous Tenzing Norgay, first man to climb Everest. Entering Gokyo valley , on higher slopes Himalayan Thar can often be seen grazing. Camping close to the most impressive of the lakes Dudh Pokhari, surrounded by magnificient peaks and Ngozumba glacier the largest in Nepal. An early morning ascent of Gokyo Ri (5360 mtr) where a complete panorama of Everest region awaits you. This is no doubt one of the finest vantage point in the Khumbu region.

Then it's on to either Everest Base Camp, scene of triumph and tragedy, or Kalapathar, which towers over the Base Camp, where you can enjoy the magnificent views of Everest, the Khumbu Glacier, longest in Nepal, and the surrounding peaks. Returning down the valley of Thyanboche Monastery, the most important center of Buddism, majestic Amadablam peak in the back ground soaring high above the clouds. Taking one last glimpse of Everest it is time to wind down to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
