Gokyo and Everest Base Camp Trekking

Gokyo and Everest Base Camp TrekkingA spectacular flight to Lukla sets the scene for the splendors to come as you make your way up Namchebazaar, the vibrant center of Sherpa life. After acclimating by spending time exploring this bustling Sherpa village, its time to trek up to Gokyo Lake and Chola pass towards Everest Base Camp. This is a fantastic trek, visiting all of the high valleys of Khumbu with extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley. We then reach Gokyo Lakes where the Khumbu range is reflected in the emerald green water below, and an optional excursion to Gokyo Ri with stunning views of Makalu and Everest may cause a slight detour.

From there you will head for the Everest Base Camp trail and the rocky summit of Kalapathar (18,193'), and its unrivaled close view of Mt. Everest and its giant neighbors. After accomplishing this feat you will trek back through the Khumbu valley to Lukla for a flight back to Kathmandu for some city adventures to match your trekking heights. Our return journey takes us to Tengboche monastery, the most important center of Buddhism in the Everest area, before descending to Lukla to fly back to Kathmandu the next day.
