About Everest Base Camp Gokyo Lake Trek
Everest region is a trekkers’ paradise. Everest Base Camp Gokyo Lake Trek is one of the brilliant trekking that offers the exclusive panoramas of the 8000 meter peaks, Lakes and glaciers. The technical Cho La Pass connects the Everest base camp and the Gokyo Lake, which is over 5000 meters and is often regarded as the most technical pass among three high passes in the Everest region.
The excellent trek to Gokyo Lake via Everest Base Camp begins from Lukla. Passing the Sherpa villages, you reach to the crowd of Sherpa communities at Namche Bazaar and Khumjung. This trek requires acclimatization to walk in the thin air region. Physical fitness comes along with it. During the acclimatizing hike around the village, you can explore the cultural fascinations of monasteries, chorttens and mani walls. There are two ways to walk further, going to the Gokyo Lake first or to Everest base camp. This trek itinerary leads you to the Everest base camp at first, then to the Gokyo Lake after crossing the Cho La Pass. Everest base camp and Kalapatthar are famous destinations. Cho La Pass is steep and technical, which is tiresome as well. With the great effort, you can do this and climb down to the Gokyo Lake. The alpine Gokyo valley, hike to Gokyo Ri and exploring the exciting sceneries are the brilliant aspect of this trip. During the Everest Cho La Pass Gokyo Lake Trekking, you can explore the Himalayan views of Mt. Everest (8,848 m), Lotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Nuptse along with the Ngozumba glacier.
