Gokyo Lakes & EBC Trek

Our Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp Trek is a must do for anyone looking to get the most bang for their Himalayan buck. Getting to Everest Base Camp at 5,364m is an amazing achievement in itself but to then head over the Cho La Pass 5,420m to see the beauty of Gokyo Lakes is a whole other experience.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek

Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in 1953. Gokyo at 4,750m sits on the shores of Gokyo Cho, the largest lake in the area. These lakes are an important religious place for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The pilgrims visit the lake every year to take a holy dip in August. This side of the valley is quieter as the trail is not a busy as the Everest Base Camp one.

As well as stunning scenery everywhere you look, your time spent in the country is packed full of cultural experiences as you immerse yourself in the Sherpa way of life. Our staff are well paid, well equipped and fully insured. Sherpas and guides working on our trips are well looked after and we prioritise good wages and treatment over trying to be price competitive. Your money has a direct positive impact.

YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Everest Basecamp & Gokyo Lakes trek suits those who are keen walkers. Each day is normally 4-8hrs of walking, and each member only carries a light (5kg) backpack. The walking itself is not overly strenuous however the altitude makes it feel quite hard. The path is normally very good although it can be rocky in places. All members have their personal equipment carried by our team of superstar porters.

Not sure whether you’re ready? No sweat! Drop us a note and we’ll be happy to talk it through with you or take our Everest Base Camp Readiness test here.

Adventure: Gokyo Lakes & EBC Trek


What to expect from your accommodation

Accommodation along the trek will be a combination of lodges and hotels when in Kathmandu.

shutterstock_609915248-scaled

Tea House Accommodation

Accommodation is in the Sherpa teahouses and Lodges along the way. These are fairly modern to begin with but become a little more basic the further into the Khumbu we venture. They are always welcoming and warm with a selection of drinks (including fizzy soft drinks and beer) and great food – Mostly local dishes like Dhal Bhat. Some items on the menu are also geared to western tastes, such as omelettes and pizza.

The typical lodge will have twin rooms for sleeping and a large communal area for dining and relaxing that will have a stove that will be lit in the evenings. Over the years we have built a great relationship with the owners of these lodges and we consider them our friends. Lodges in the Khumbu are the best in Nepal. They’re not ultra modern or luxurious, but they’re clean and comfortable, and all have running water and clean toilet facilities.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HERE'S YOUR ITINERARY

While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain and the weather sometimes has other ideas. We will always remain as flexible as possible, which is why we only work with experienced and knowledgeable local guides, to make sure we can change any plans if required.

  • Day 1:
    Arrive in Kathmandu

    When you arrive at Kathmandu airport you will be greeted by an Adventure Base representative who will take you to your hotel. You spend the day resting and preparing for our adventure with the opportunity to head into the marketing in Kathmandu to experience the city or pick up any last minute bits.

  • Day 2:
    Flight to Lukla (2900m) and Trek to Phakding (2660m)

    You get up nice and early to try and catch one of the first flights out of Kathmandu to Lukla. You'll experience the exhiliraiting rush of landing at one of the most iconic airstrips on the planet. Once landed you will then meet your guide and porters for the trip. The day’s trek places you at the entrance to the Everest National Park in Monjo (2835m) and the adventure truly begins.

    7km / 250m+ / 450m- / 4 hours

  • Day 3:
    Trek to Namche (3440m)

    After entering the national park you walk alongside the giant Dudi Kosi River before you make your way slowly and steadily uphill to the Sherpa capital city Namche Bazaar, crossing some impressive bridges along the way. Namche is considered the capital of the Sherpa people and its impressive size and infrastructure is quite remarkable..

    11km / 1125m+ / 360m- / 6 hours

  • Day 4:
    Acclimatisations Day at Namche Bazaar (3440m)

    Today you rest in Namche Bazaar. Here you let your body get used to the increase in altitude. Some may take a gentle stroll to the Everest Hotel (3900m) to take in some of the breath taking views of the mountains, while others may wander the energetic streets of Namche to experience the shops and, if you’re lucky, the Tibetan Market.

  • Day 5:
    Trek to Deboche (3820m)

    It’s back on the trail as you make your way around the mountainside, sharing the trail with yaks and porters carrying supplies up and down the valley. You pass incredible viewpoints and, from this point on, it feels like you are truly in the Himalayas. You drop down to the Dudi Kosi River again before climbing up to the famous Thyangboche Monastery. There is time to explore this wonder of the Khumbu and to take in the history of the Lamas. Inside are beautiful wall hangings, ornate carvings and a giant Buddha. If the team is fortunate, it may be possible to see the Lamas praying which is a tremendously moving experience. You'll then head down the hill a little to Deboche to spend the night nestled among the rhododendron trees in a quiet setting.

    12km / 1400m+ / 750m- / 6 hours

  • Day 6:
    Trek to Dingboche (4410m)

    A day that is dominated by the views of Ama Dablam (the ‘Matterhorn of the Himalaya’). You head further into the Khumbu area and reach Dingboche a small Sherpa village, where you settle down for another day of acclimatising. There are a few shops here so it’s a chance to stock up on anything you might need.

    10km / 1130m+ / 1450m- / 6 hours

  • Day 7:
    REST DAY IN DINGBOCHE (4410M)

    This is a well earned rest day in Dingboche. Just like in Namche, it is a chance to let your body catch up. If the weather allows, you can hike up above the village to a small summit that is strewn with prayer flags. Or of course you can simply rest, drinking the famous Nepalese honey, lemon, ginger tea.

  • Day 8:
    Trek to Lobuche (4930m)

    You leave Dingboche and contour around the hillside to Dzugla. From Dzugla we climb the hill that puts you among the climber’s memorials. This is an area where stones have been piled to remember those who have died in the nearby mountains. It is a haunting and touching place and no-one passes without feeling moved by what they see and feel. A mellow walk takes us into Lobuche and our resting place for the night.

    9km / 750m+ / 100m- / 6 hours

  • Day 9:
    Trek to Everest Basecamp & Trek back to Gorak Shep.

    Leave Lobuche in search of Gorak Shep, the highest settlement on the Everest Base Camp trek. Grab a quick drink here before heading off in search of Everest Base Camp. After a good few hours trekking you eventually grab site of the tents and the base of the Khumbu Glacier, the place from where where Edmund Hillary stated his Everest ascent back in ’53. You spend a bit of time here before heading back to Gorak Shep.

    18km / 450m+ / 100m- / 8 hours

  • Day 10:
    Climb Kala Patthar (5,540m) & Trek to Pangboche (3,930m)

    After spending the night at Gorak Shep, you'll climb Kala Pattar (5,540m) to reach the top as the sun rises on the highest mountain in the world. The views are simply stunning. This was the site of Base Camp for the 1953 Everest expedition, and also the world’s highest ever cricket match in 2009. We then head off down the mountain all the way to Pengboche.

    26km / 650m+ / 1850m- / 7 hours

  • Day 11:
    Cross Cho La Pass (5,420m) & Trek to Gokyo (4,750m)

    The ‘crux’ of the trip. Today you cross over the Cho La Pass. At this point you are likely to have to wear your crampons as you navigate the snow at the top of the pass. If the weather is kind you will get a great view of Everest if you look back. You don’t get to see the lakes until the very end of your trek today. Don’t worry it’s worth the wait though as you enter Gokyo village.

    13km / 830m+ / 900m- / 4-5 hours

  • Day 12:
    Climb Gokyo Ri (5,357m) & Back to Gokyo (4,750m)

    Today is another mellow day as you get to summit Gokyo Ri another high point on the trip. You get the day to rest up and take in the sights before you start your descent back to Lukla.

    3.2km / 601m+ / 601m- / 2-3 hourS

  • Day 13:
    Trek to DOLE (4,038M)

    Enjoy the winding trails as you head down the valley towards Dole. Stunning views and more oxygen will put a spring your step as you move.

    12km / 250m+ / 975m- / 4-5 hours

  • Day 14:
    TREK TO MONJO (2,835M)

    You head back through Namche today where we stop for food and any souvenirs you might decide you want. It’s a big milestone coming back through Namchee as you say goodbye to the capital of the Sherpa people.

    16.6km / 1500m+ / 2662m- / 7-8 hours

  • Day 15:
    TREK TO LUKLA (2,900M)

    Your final day's trekking takes you back to the airport village of Lukla. Enjoy the scenery and the Sherpa people for one last time as you take your final steps on this magical adventure.

    13km / 750m+ / 750m- / 5 hours

  • Day 16:
    FLY TO KATHMANDU

    Wake up nice and early and fly back to Kathmandu. There’s no feeling quite like the one as you take off on that short platform in the twin engine plane. We transfer you back to your hotel in Kathmandu where you can put your feet up and enjoy a lovely warm shower.

  • DAY 17
    FREE DAY IN KATHMANDU

    Enjoy Kathmandu and the facilities at the hotel. This is also a spare day in case you don’t leave for the trek on the scheduled day at the beginning of the trip.

  • DAY 18

We will provide you with a free duffel bag that you will use on the trek. The porters will carry it for you each day and deliver it to your accommodation. You will need a day pack of around 20-25L that can carry layers, snacks, water and anything else you might need while trekking. You will be able to leave your travel bag at the hotel until you return so can leave anything in that also.

GL: CULTURE

One of the best things about the Everest Base Camp Trek is being able to get to know and learn Read more

One of the best things about the Everest Base Camp Trek is being able to get
to know and learn about the Nepalese people, specifically the Sherpas. They were believed to have migrated to this region some 400 years ago from Tibet. You’ll find prayer flags, mani wheels and monasteries all along the route to symbolise their Buddhist traditions.

They’re an extremely friendly and welcoming group of people and enjoy a laugh. However you need to understand that in Nepal things don’t always go to plan and they have a laid back approach to plans. We find it’s best to try and embrace that, rather than fight it.

Yes you can. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and a bustling city. The Thamel market is a great place to head to pick up any kit you might need for the trek. You can pick up sleeping bags, down jackets, t-shirts and anything else you might need for the trip at a fraction of the price.

We need a minimum of 4 trekkers to run this course. Your booking will remain pending if you are the first to book onto a course and we will send you a confirmation as soon
as the course is confirmed. We recommend not booking flights till the course is confirmed. We will confirm the course at the latest 10 weeks before the start date. In order to increase the chance of confirming trips as soon as possible we team up with other small suppliers, so you may be on the
trip with trekkers who have booked from a similar company.

When in Katmandu options are endless. Whether you’re looking local Nepalese cuisine or a something your a little more familiar with at home, you’ll be able to get it.

When on the trails your options are also pretty good. The local dish is called Dhal Bhat which is comprised of white rice and lentils typically accompanied by a vegetable curry. Your Sherpas and Porters will eat this dish throughout the length of the journey frequently quoting ‘Dal Bhat Power 24hr’. It’s not just Dal Bhat on offer though as almost all tea houses will offer mimosas, noddles, pizza, burgers and curry dishes. One things for sure, you won’t go hungry. You can pick up snacks and drinks all along the route but be aware the price goes up the higher you go.

One of the big questions we get asked before this trip is whether it’s safe to eat the meat. The answer is both yes and no, much like anywhere. If you want to remove any risk of food poisoning then stick to vegetarian options as it’s no fun trekking with an ‘iffy’ tummy.

Plug type C is the plug which has two round pins, plug type D is the plug which has three round pins in a triangular pattern and plug type M has three round pins. It’s worth bringing a battery pack so you don’t have to pay each time you stop. Expect to pay around $3 for this.

Porters are the backbone of trekking in the Himalayas. Everything you see that’s man made on the mountain has probably had porters bring it there. They’re immensely strong and are use to the thin air.

On our trips we use porters to carry your overnight bags meaning you can carry a lighter day pack. It can feel a little uncomfortable at first but it provides work and opportunity for those aspiring to be guides. We will help with what to take on the trip but it’s important to remember when deciding on taking on that extra book or pair of shoes that someone else will be carrying it
