Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek Reviews

Gokyo Lake , EBC is the perfect trek
5 - Excellent
  • Maria Wenzel
“If you have time it worth to add Gokyo part on EBC trek. The Valley with the blue Lake - Gokyo reflect off the lake with the mountain Cho Oyo in the background is my best.”
I CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM ENOUGH!!!

  • Joelle Chartrain
“AMAZING!!! Everyone we met through this company was just incredible and went above and beyond. Suman was our guide and he is the absolute the sweetest. He made the trek unforgettable. He is so knowledgeable - we felt so safe with him and he had an answer to everything! The prep chats the night before were the best. He made sure we knew what to expect the next day, and made sure we were always ok. Ramesh was also the greatest. He made us laugh so much and spent so much time with us. It was such a treat overall. We hiked to base camp and then to Gokyo Lake. It was a beautiful trek. We did need medical help and Suman made sure everything went so smoothly. Prior to the trek, we were in contact with Upendra, who was always prompt to respond, very kind, organized, and detailed. I cannot recommend them enough!!! Thank you for this wonderful experience!!!”

“Almost everyday was a new challenge and we were pushing out limits everyday in this "mountain test". Through all the good or poor weather, we still manage to see so many scenic views. It was a super exciting 14 day trekking trip with the best guide Bishwa! He was relatable and really humorous. If I could turn back time, I would still do it all over again. :)”

If you are looking for a trek with beautiful scenery, great trails, and memorable adventure, the Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek is for you. The trek includes a visit to the village of Gokyo which is situated next to one of the 5 Emerald lakes which the Gokyo region is famous for. You will also be hiking to Gokyo Ri (5,357 m) which offers one of the most amazing panoramic views of the Himalayan landscape including majestic peaks such as Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Mt. Everest, and Mt. Makalu (8,481 m).

After exploring the splendid Gokyo region you will be crossing the Ngozumpa glacier arising from Mt. Cho Oyu. The Ngozumpa Glacier is the longest glacier in Nepal and while it may look daunting and risky, it is not safe to traverse across this massive glacier. You then cross the Cho La Pass (5,368 m) which will take you from the Gokyo region into the Everest region. Having entered the Everest region, you will soon arrive at the famous Everest Base Camp with lots of tented camps.

Another highlight of the trek is the view from Kala Patthar (5,643 m), the highest point of this trek. Kala Patthar offers breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse, and other majestic peaks in the Khumbu region.

Besides the 15-day Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek, there are other trekking options available in the Everest region.

  • The standard Everest Base Camp trek is similar to this trek but does not go to Gokyo valley. It can be completed in 12 days.
  • Another option is the Everest Base Camp - 3 Passes trek, which is a 16-23 days trek that goes through three high mountain passes - Kong Ma La, Renjo La and Cho La Pass, each pass above 5,000 meters.
  • If you have less time on your hands and still want to explore the Everest region, then the 7-day Everest Panorama trek might be your best option.

Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek - Safety considerations

We take your safety very seriously at BookMundi, which is why all trekking agencies available at Bookmundi.com are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. Each and every agency will go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting. However, please consider the following for the Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek:

  • Since this is a high altitude trek that goes through high mountain passes, proper acclimatization is absolutely essential. Acclimatization days are required during the trek to avoid altitude sickness.
  • Temperatures regularly drop below freezing around EBC and Gokyo during early spring, late autumn and winter. Depending on the time of the year, please ensure that you are properly dressed and have the proper gear.
