14 Days
Everest Region
Nepal

The Gokyo and Khumbu valleys are arguably the most dramatic and interesting of the Everest region. This trekking explores the friendly Sherpa villages, monasteries, wildlife and dramatic mountain scenery of the area.

After a breathtaking flight of 30 minutes to Lukla, we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar and then trek into the Gokyo Valley. The trail ascends gradually and we enjoy a series of short trekking days, to ensure proper acclimatization, walking beside the moraines of the Ngozumpa glacier and turquoise lakes to reach our destination lodge in Gokyo. From here we climb Gokyo Ri (5360m) to a view massif 8000-metre peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu – a breathtaking panorama

From Gokyo we trek via Phortse and Pangboche to rejoin the main trail to Everest Base Camp, which we follow to GorakShep. It is a short but steep climb to KalaPatthar from where the climbing route from base camp to the summit can be seen, showing the immense scale of any attempt on Everest. We also take the rugged trail to visit Everest Base Camp before trekking back to Lukla, via the beautiful Thyangboche Monastery.

u will take the breathtaking flight to Lukla. The Namchebazzar the gateway to Everest Region is great town. The Tyangboche Monastery where all the mountaineers get blessed from the supreme Monk is nice to enjoy. The Gokyo Lake is great & beautiful lake in the Himalaya.

Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lake Trek FAQs

What is the procedure to sign up for Everest Base Camp Trekking?

This sign up process depends on your time and duration for trek. Booking can be done at least 2-3 weeks ahead from our departure date. But be sure to check your medical and physical health before signing the trip. Another important thing is to purchase medical and travel insurance for this kind of adventurous treks in Himalayas.

Is trekking possible only in group or single too can book? And Can you let me know about the weather there in Everest?

There isn’t mandatorily to be in group, we allow to book for single but with some conditions. But if you are looking for group it can vary from minimum 3-4 person to maximum of 10-15 persons.
The best time to trek is from March to May, as this is time when day remains clear and temperature stays from minimum 0° to 20° Celsius depending upon the altitude and areas. This is the perfect time to trek, because from morning till days the vision remains clear where we can relish the views and even walk for short, but sometimes afternoon can be over casted with little rain and snow.
March to May is the time of full bloom of various species of Rhododendron that is much lively and eye-catching.

What sort of the guesthouse/cottage and Tea-House are there within Treks?

Long before Tea house were supposed to be the place to have Tea especially and used to be small but now the scenario has been changed, these days each village have more than 10 to 20 good guesthouse/lodges with pleasant rooms to stay on. And On altitude of above 4,000 the lodges are good but some have toilets and bathrooms outside but some have inside too.
All rooms are cosy and have heating facilities to make your stay much pleasant and entertaining.

Is electricity and network for cell-phones available there?

Yes. Electricity is available mostly run by hydro-power in most of the places. But after Namche and Thyangboche much of power supply is private of the lodge owners mostly the solar power to activate electric just for the lodge and as well for customers to charge their computers and cell-phones.
Network is not that big problem, condition has been changed a lot these days. Even remote villages had good support phones with good network connection. Leaving some places mostly in deep regions around river gorge, there is good networks for cell phones and also good internets/Wi-Fi. Dingboche and some areas having high altitude and hills comprehend good networks.
And except in bad weather condition the networks can be shattered, otherwise it is fine.

What will happen when someone gets sick and have to leave the trek?

We are not just good in saying but in real too. We do not leave our customers in vulnerable situation. If this kind of situation occurs, we will give more priority to the victim. We have well equipped and knowledgeable guides in emergency and as well as in medical purpose. Depending on the seriousness of the victim we will transfer him/her for acute medical attention. We have Helicopter-services to those to take them to hospital as soon as possible.
And if someone suffers from modest AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), it is better to take rest and have excessive fluid. We will deploy extra guide to take care of sick clients till he / she recovers on route treks and if condition worsens we will guide them to descend to safer areas and even manage an advance flight to Kathmandu.

What kind and how hygienic food will be served during treks lodges on route?

We are here to give the best to or clients, regarding meals everything is prepared as per clients’ menu items, all foods items are prepared with much concern of hygiene, avoiding any complaints and holding the reputation of the lodges. In fact, most of lodges are serving for more than two decades to world-wide travellers with ethics.

I have heard people could get sick while on treks, can you clarify the reason behind this?

It is true what you have heard. But, getting sick is unpredictable, anyone can be sick at any time but talking about trek, the primary reason behind being sick is food during treks. As Asian foods are a bit spicy comparing to other, so because of not getting used with the food makes they sick. It is a sudden change on diets. There may be different concept regarding this question but hearing rumours and facing the reality on your own gives the crystal clear view.
And we suggest all our clients to get better advice from your guides before and after the treks, what to eat and what not to eat, what are the best food to consume and many more. Next thing that we strongly advocate to our visitors is to avoid meat items in initial period as it may not be hygienic and could be meat of a week time or more. The best way to get rid of getting sick is to be vegetarian for sometimes and stay healthy till acclimatization to local environment and culture.

What types of medication do I need to bring from home? Can you please circulate the major factors and precautions one should take care within treks?

Firstly, we recommend to bring the general medication from home consulting your doctor. There are some basic medicines against diarrhoea, headache, fever, flu as well constipation including first aid for cuts-wounds and burns as well. Apart from this general medicines, carry your personal medicines recommended by your doctor.
We are much concerned to our client’s health and safety too, so in every trip we carry comprehensive medical kits.
Beside these medication clients’ always needs to stick with the rules of the company and suggestion of guides / leader. Most of the travellers suffers from stomach disorder and this is considered as the main disease and this is because of change in food and climate. Be aware of spicy food but if you have travelled mostly in South Asian countries, the food will not be a problem.
AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is another issue during trek and can happen to anyone not familiar walking in higher elevation. Because of the high altitude one might suffer from AMS. Concerning this we have designed our itinerary in that way where people can acclimatize well within relaxation days in high places before reaching much higher altitude.
There are medicines which can be used as high altitude pills, but needs consult the doctors before taking the right dose, thus can be helpful to regulate the flow of blood from getting clots in high altitude. Apart from that drinking plenty of water, juice, rehydration drink, black tea and taking rest when got tired can help to get rid from AMS.

Our destination, Tengboche, is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We’ll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu.

Day 09Trek to Lobuche 4,890 m - 05 hrs.

From here on forth, the trek will move more gradually be more challenging, due to the higher altitude. We’ll pass Dungla, but not before a tough, steep walk to the top of a high hill.

The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse. Prepare to snuggle up for a cold night, as we are now almost three miles above sea level and the evenings can be downright chilly!

Day 10Trek to Everest Base Camp 5,365 m and way back to Gorakshep 5,180 m-06 hrs

This is it! Our big day kicks off with an initial, relatively easy trek from Lobuche to Gorekshep. The subsequent, straight trail to Everest Base Camp is harder, involving rocky dunes and moraine, formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris. On the way to our destination, we’ll approach the famed Khumbu Glacier and icefall, located on the slopes of Everest. At the Base Camp, our goal, you’ll have the chance (during the spring climbing season) to meet climbers attempting to scale the mountain’s summit. Break out your cameras for unbelievable views of breathtaking beauty.

Day 12Dzongla to Chola to Thaknak Altitude: Cho La 5364m/17598ft, Thaknak 4358m/14298ft

This could be the most challenging day of the trek as you go over the pass. Fortunately, having already visited Everest Base Camp you should be getting used to trekking at the high altitude and feeling stronger. If the weather is bad crossing the pass can be difficult. Crampons are not normally used but microspikes can be helpful if the weather is at all bad. It’s a tough climb to the top but the amazing views more than makeup for it.

Day 13Thaknak to Gokyo Altitude: Gokyo 4750m/15584ft

We continue down into the Gokyo Valley and cross the Ngozumpa glacier the longer glacier in this part of the Himalayas and an impressive sight. We should reach Gokyo by lunch.

Although further away the views of Everest are great and you get to look down on one of the largest glaciers in the Himalayas below you.

Day 15Machermo to Namchhe Altitude: 3,440m/11,283ft (Namche)

The trek spends most of the day going down the Gokyo Valley with some good views of the peaks before you intersect back with the main route up to Everest Base Camp and head back to Namche. Will spend the night in Namche Bazaar.

Day 16Namchhe to Phakding and Lukla Altitude: 2,800m/9,184ft
