Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri Trek is quite simply the classic trek in Nepal. High in the priority list of trekkers, the Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri is one of the most visited regions in the Himalaya. Trekkers usually fly from Kathmandu to Lukla to save time before the trek begins to Everest Base Camp. Situated at 2,815m, it is a popular place for visitors to the Himalayas near Mount Everest. From Lukla, the trek begins upward passing Phakting, Manju and Jorsalla and reach to Namche Bazaar 3,440 m , following the valley of the Dudh Koshi River. Then, trek allows a day of rest for acclimatization.
Namche Bazaar is located within the Khumbu area at 3,440 metres, at its low point. The trail follows the valley of Imja Khola with spectacular views of Thamserku, Kangtega and Ama Dablam mountains, and dominating the skyline ahead are the giants, Lhotse and Everest. It is an exhilarating, but challenging trek that combines the Everest Base Camp route with the turquoise glacial lakes of Gokyo valley. We start with a classic, less visited route to Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu glacier. Kala Pathar (5,545 m) is our first ascent which rewards us with a panorama of the majestic Everest and its neighbouring peaks of Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, and Lhotse. Throughout this Trek, the panorama is constantly changing but each and every one leaves you with an indelible memory of this mountain wilderness.
The Trailthen crosses the glaciated Cho La Pass (5,330 m) to the Goyko valley with its perfect turquoise glacial lakes. One of the eight-thousanders, Cho Oyu (8,153m) is seen towards the north from Gokyo. There are many great views around the valley. The most popular of them is seen by ascending a ridge for 2-3 hours to the north-west to reach a small summit. You can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view extending from Cho Oyu and Everest, to Lhotse all the way to Makalu.
