Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lake Trek

Maximum Altitude: 5545 meters

Duration of Trek: 17 days mountain lodge

Grade: Medium to Hard 

This trek is with some extra value. Our trek to Everest Base Camp goes via Gokyo Lake. Gokyo is located immediately west of the Khumbu valley. It is much less traveled or developed than the main trail.

The Gokyo valley is dominated at its head by the massive Cho-Oyu (8153 meters). From Gokyo we ascend to Gokyo RI (two hours) for some spectacular views before retracing to Gokyo, we then follow the south easterly trail to Thagnag Kharka.

The following two days are spent reaching Lobuche on the main Everest trail. 

Lobuche to Kalapatthar takes two more days via Everest glacier where there are spectacular high mountain views of Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse. Five more days are taken retracing to Lukla for the flight back to Kathmandu.
