Join us on this 15-day guided trek to the Gokyo Valley that is is popular as an alternative to the Everest Base Camp trek. We will pick you up upon arrival in Kathmandu and drive you to your hotel. Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Kathmandu city on the second day of the trip.

Time to head to the mountains. We will drive you to the airport for a flight to Lukla. Your journey begins now. Take the Everest Base Camp trail and trek to Phakding followed by Namche Bazaar, the centre of trade and commerce in the Khumbu region.

Leave the EBC trail behind and head for Phortse Thenga followed by Machherma after which you reach Gokyo, the village of six sacred lakes located on a moraine close to the Ngozumpa Glacier. Explore the Gokyo area before heading to Gokyo Ri, a 5,357m high peak in the Khumbu region. See Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse and Taboche, among other mountains.

Descend to Lukla following the same route. This spectacular, two-week climb takes you to an altitude almost as high as that of Everest Base Camp and offers jaw-dropping views of the Himalayas. However, the trail to Gokyo is less crowded and quieter with traditional Sherpa villages serving local meals to legions of hungry trekkers. The trail follows the Dudh Kosi River to its source - a series of emerald green lakes.
