This trekking package is a journey that takes us to two of the region’s most beloved sites: Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley. Our itinerary allows us to experience nearly every highlight of the Khumbu region. From lush forests to gracious Sherpa villages to unbelievable Himalayan views, there will never be a dull moment. For most treks in the region, reaching Everest Base Camp is the pinnacle moment of the journey. In the Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lake Trek, this is only the beginning. After reaching EBC, we continue to the emerald-green Gokyo Lakes after crossing the ambitious Cho La Pass (5368m).
Each day, our minds will be in awe at the landscapes around us. We start the trek with a flight to Lukla and then hike through beautiful Sherpa villages and the lush forests that surround them. Passing through pine and rhododendron forests, we already feel refreshed, and excited for the trek ahead. Chhortens, prayer flags, and other symbols of Tibetan Buddhist culture increase the charm along the path. We stay in Namche Bazaar, a fun place to explore while getting accustomed to the altitude. After taking an extra day to acclimatize, we stayed in Tengboche, home of the Tengboche Monastery. The monastery is located at the confluence of the Dudh Kosi River and Imja Khola River and is the largest gompa in the Khumbu region. The next major highlight, after several days of stunning mountain views and beautiful villages, is the hike up Everest Base Camp (5364m), which includes a view of Khumbu Glacier. The next day, we hike to Kala Patthar (5540m), feeling energized and grateful to be surrounded by such beauty. After crossing the strenuous Chola La Pass, we again feel rewarded by the pristine landscape. The amazement continues as we cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and reach Gokyo Valley and Gokyo Ri (5360m). We enjoy the jaw-dropping views of alpine lakes, mountain peaks, and glaciers. From here, we begin our descent back to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
Trekking is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather. During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. The Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley Trek require fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the trek with complete management.
