Gokyo Lake to Everest Base Camp Trek- 16 Days is an amazing trip that takes you to Everest Base Camp from Gokyo Valley over the Cho La Pass (5420m). This trek allows us to make a small circuit in Everest Region instead of walking the same way up and back. We will also summit two peaks Gokyo Ri (5360m) and Kalapatthar (5545m) during our trip.

Gokyo Lake to Everest Base Camp Trek starts after an adventurous flight to a small airstrip in Lukla. After a relaxed breakfast in Lukla, we gradually make our way towards Namache Bazar- gateway to Mount Everest. We will take an rest day for acclimitization in Namche Bazar. On our rest day we will hike up to Khumjung Village, where we will visit Khumjung Monastery to check out the ‘YETI SKULL’. On this day, we will be greeted with facinating view of Mt Everest, Mt Lhotse, Ama Dablam and much more. After our acclimitization, we will head west in the Dudh Koshi Valley towards Gokyo Lake. We will climb up to Gokyo Ri to enjoy spectacular view of Gokyo Lake, Mt Cho Oyu, Mt Everest, and other Himalayan peaks. After summiting Gokyo Ri, we continues towards Cho La Pass, where we will traverse Nagozumpa glacier. After crossing Cho La Pass, we head towards Everest Base Camp and also ascend the summit of Kala Patthar from where you can get a close up view of Mt Everest and the eintire panaroma. Bustling Sherpa villages, high altitude terrain, high passe, two summits, picturesque glacial lakes, glaciers, unlimited view of world’s highest peaks and the accomplishment in itself are some of the many highlights of  Gokyo Lake to Everest Base Camp Trek.
