"Looking for something extra in the Khumbu region? Then join us on our Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek 2022/2023. It's a fantastic trek full of adventure and jaw-dropping landscapes. You explore Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri, EBC, Kala Patthar, and cross Cho La pass"
We have combined two adventurous trekking routes of the Khumbu region and have created this ultimate Gokyo lakes and Everest base camp itinerary. Following the dense forests of Sagarmatha National Park and trekking through fine mountain villages, we make our way to the stunning Gokyo Valley and then to Everest Base Camp.
Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek is a bit more challenging than the usual EBC trek. Therefore, we recommend this trek to trekkers who have some sort of previous trekking experience. The trekking route is difficult and has many long ascents & descents. Leaving the bustling trail of the Khumbu region, you'll embark on a relatively less crowded route on the first half of the trek to reach Gokyo valley.
The trail ascends through Phortse Thanga (3,680 m) and Machherma (4,470 m) villages before reaching the beautiful Gokyo village (4,750 m), situated at the eastern shore of third Gokyo Lake, Dudh Pokhari. There are six main Gokyo Lakes that range from 4,700 meters to 5,000 meters. These lakes are the world's largest freshwater lake system and a designated Ramsar site.
Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek 18 days cross the high Cho La pass (5,420 m) and join the main route to Everest Base Camp (5,364 m). The trail goes along the lateral moraines of Khumbu Glacier to the lap of Mt. Everest. You then further ascend to Kala Patthar (5,644 m), following a steep rocky trail from Gorak Shep (5,164 m).
Kala Pattar offers a gorgeous sunrise and sensational mountain panorama of Mt. Everest (8,849 m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Nuptse (7,861 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Mt. Makalu (8,463 m), Mt.
