Trekking in Nepal – Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek

This is another trek on the Everest route that takes you to the heart of Everest. After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch & rhododendron forests where the elusive musk deer lurch large. Through small yak-grazing settlements we reach the Gokyo lakes where we climb to Gokyo Peak (5,364m) & enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu & Cho Oyu. From this point we follow a trail heading south of Phortse towards Pheriche. After the ascent to Kala Pattar (5545m) & the impressive up-close view of Everest, our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery. We rest here overnight & savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856m), Kantega (6,685m), Kwangde (6194m), Nuptse (7864m), & Lhotse (8414m).
