Gokyo Lake with EBC

20 Day/s Lodge Trek in Nepal

On this trip we take you to some of the highest valleys in the earth. Everest base camp via Gokyo Lake trek is specially designed to those desiring a circular trip rather than the standard Everest Base camp trek that returns along the same trial.

Starting with a flight to Lukla we come across the beautiful landscapes surrounded by spectacular snow capped mountain dominating the sky line. Walking on the terminal moraine of Ngozumpa Glacier, the longest in the Himalayas we reach our ultimate destination, valley of Gokyo following a series of turquoise lakes. Gokyo valley comprises of 19 lakes spread over its area. Advancing further we enter Khumbu region to reach GorakShep, an ancient lakebed that was the original Everest base camp, later moved nearer to the mountain below the Khumbu Icefall. Each day brings us closer to the Himalayas and the climb to the ultimate viewpoint at Kalapathar, offers you a view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (world's fourth highest mountain), Pumori, AmaDablam and panoply of other mountains, all in one graceful 180 degree panoramic arc.
This memorable trek ends at Lukla, and an early morning flight brings you back to Kathmandu.
