Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp Trek

 

Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp Trek

Trek Grade: C (Challenging)
Trek Duration: 14 Days
Hotel in KTM: 4 Nights
Season: Feb. to May & Sept. to Nov.

This trek in Khumbu goes through the Gokyo Valley and over Chola Pass. It encompasses some of Khumbu’s most dramatic scenery. This trek combines two famous treks into one. When we reach Gokyo, we have a panoramic view of massive peaks like Cho Oyu (8,155m.) Gyachungkang (7,922m.) and some great glaciers, mainly the Ngozumba Glacier. After crossing Chola Pass, we can have a close view of Kalapattar (5,555m.) and peaks like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori & Makalu. Finally, we approach the Base Camp of Everest. This is a strenuous trek and should only be attempted by those who are fit and experienced. The Sherpas, whose hospitality is world renowned, are our constant companions. The Gokyo or Upper Dudh Koshi Valley offers a fine and arguably even more spectacular route into the heart of the Khumbu than the popular direct trail up the Khumbu Valley. This is especially true when combined with a crossing of the Chola Pass to Lobuche. As with the conventional approach to Everest Base Camp, the stages recommended on this trek are purposely short to give you time to acclimatize.
