EBC Gokyo Treks

Visit Gokyo and EBC in Khumbu Valley

Overview

The Everest Base Camp trek through Gokyo Lakes is the ideal trek for someone looking for adventure. The trek takes the trekker to the Gokyo Valley, Chola pass and the famous viewpoint, Kalapatthar.

The trek further cuts across the landmarks of the Everest Region along with the majestic mountains, hospitable Sherpas and Namche Bazzar. Gokyo has a reputation among the adventurers as it is a hidden valley with crystal clear blue lakes. Many trekkers believe their Everest Base Camp Trek is incomplete without visiting the Gokyo valley.

The entire trip is filled with the spectacular views of the never ending natural beauty and glistening lakes. Besides the lakes, you will get a chance to enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view of the Everest massif and the other snow capped mountains from the Kalapatthar view point. This trek is graded as difficult, challenging and is suitable only for experienced hikers who are able to walk for long hours and have what it takes to face a challenge. EBC Gokyo route takes you to high altitude, so altitude sickness is a common problem in this trek. Walking over the snow and high and low lands, witness the natural beauty, unique culture of the Sherpas and lush evergreen forests will give you a memory of a lifetime. If you opt for this trek during the month of April, you will get a chance to enjoy the Dumje festival and the Mani Rimdu Dance.
