Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek

Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek

Gokyo Everest Base camp trek is one of the most challening trek in everest region.This trek passes with Khongma la pass, cho la pass and Gokyo renjola pass. Gokyo renjola pass can be done during from March to May, and September to December. You can see a great view of Mount Everest, and other beautiful mountains.

Chukhung ri with khongma la pass-everest base camp & kala pattar – gokyo lakes & gokyo ri – cho la & renjo la pass- & many more! A challenging, ‘best of the everest region‘ journey through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the himalaya with guides who spend all their time in the himalaya; our trek is a window into traditional sherpa villages and ‘gompas’ (monasteries), their mountain buddhist culture and their sacred peaks and valley.

From kathmandu you will fly to lukla and follow the Gokyo everest base camp trek trail through namche bazaar, tyangboche and dingboche to the kongma la pass surrounded by dramatic views of ama dablam, makalu and the Lhotse, Nuptse face. From the kongma la pass , you will descend to the khumbu glacier and then ascend kala patar for breathtaking close-up views of mount everest and a sea of other Himalayan giants.

You traverse the glaciated cho la pass to gokyo, where we explore the valley and climb gokyo ri to enjoy more excellent mountain views including another angle of everest, and cho oyu on the Tibetan border to the north then bear west to scramble across the renjo la, dramatically back-dropped by the everest range, to enter the bhote kosi valley, where you walk along grazing pastures and a trading route used by yak trains from tibet to thame. It is a short day from thame to namche bazaar, where you will re-trace your earlier steps to lukla and then fly back to kathmandu.
