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.

The Everest base camp Gokyo Lake Trek ends at Lukla after descending from the Gokyo Lake. Adventure Bound organizes this trek with all arrangements. Please, contact us for more details.

Trip note

It is important to be noted that the Kathmandu -Lukla - Kathmandu flights often gets delayed by hours or even gets cancelled for a day or few days due to unfavorable weather conditions in the mountain airstrip Lukla. Such unfavorable conditions may arise even during the best seasons including months October and November hence inis always better to prepare ahead. In such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or at the end of the trek and sometime in both cases. We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the earliest next flight for you but it might not always work well as there are many people in que for days long. In case of emergencies and need of urgent flight, the Helicopter rescue can be another option to escape to and from the mountain, except for some bad weather the Helicopters always have easy excess in the mountains. This can be arranged upon your request with some additional cost which sometime is covered by your insurance as well. The Helicopter can be chartered from both the airports, Kathmandu and Lukla with the tentative cost of US$ 3000 per lift which at a time can accommodate maximum of 5 Person. Having said this, we still suggest you to mentally prepare for possible delay/cancellations and arrange some extra contingency days which we can save for the end of the trip and if everything goes normal these days can be utilized for exploring other beautiful destinations around the valley as per your interest and we, the Adventure Bound is always there to provide you different options to utilize the days in best ways.
