“My guide Gopal is a very cheerful and funny person. He sang and laughed a lot during the trek. He is very caring as well. He adjusted his speed to suit my conditions and the altitudes. He is helpful and professional as well. He can name all those mountains name. Although he is a bit fat, he is fit and energetic. I really enjoy the time with him.
My porter is slim but very strong. He is a responsible guy as well. Both if them speak good English and always share their experience to us.
The trek is well planned and comprehensive. I do not need to worry much but just trek in the trip. Lucky to have superb guide and porter.”

  • From USA
“We had an amazing trip and Green Valley is a great company to work with. November was the right time to go to Nepal. Sitting underneath the Himalayan giants was incredible. The trails are really tough. They are steep and beat up. We only had 6 of the original 10 that made the whole trek. AMS and people who just didn't take training seriously. This is a HARD hike! Prepare and you will be fine if you don't you will get an expensive helicopter ride out. Recommend going EBC then Cho La. It was nice to have fewer people on the trail at the end and the pull up the western side of Cho La seems horrible. I was glad to be heading down. Food is good but you may want to supplement protein after Namche.”

Gokyo and Everest Base Camp Trek - Overview

The picturesque Gokyo and Everest Base Camp Trek explores the pristine and beautiful Gokyo region and will later join the famous Everest Base Camp trek via the Cho La Pass, taking you to the foot of the world’s tallest mountain – Mt. Everest (8,848 m).

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.
