This Everest-Gokyo Trek visits all of the high valleys surrounding Everest, culminating with the ascent of Kala Patthar and the walk to Everest Base Camp. We have extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley, which provides the most extensive view of Everest in the whole of the Khumbu. This is the most famous and epic trek in Nepal to explore villages and monasteries and to experience hospitality of the Sherpa people.
We begin our Everest Base Camp – Gokyo Trek with an unforgettable mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Walking through delightful Sherpa villages, we make our way to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar. Here we have allowed time for essential acclimatization. Continuing higher to Gokyo’s alpine lakes, we explore the upper valley beneath the huge bulk of Cho Oyu. From the top of Gokyo Ri, we have an unbelievable view of Everest and the surrounding peaks and glaciers.
Our trek continues through the Khumbu valley. The trek combines to get the top of Kala Patthar (5600m) for even more spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Kala Patthar is the another best view point to see mount Everest and the Khumbu icefall. We have a day to visit Everest Base Camp across the Khumbu Glacier at the foot of the immensely impressive Khumbu Icefall. Our return journey will take us to Thyangboche monastery. This Monastery is the most important center of Buddhism in the area. At the end we have another opportunity to experience the exciting mountain flight to Kathmandu.
