Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp

Includes easy glacier walking, a Himalayan pass, and two walk-up peaks up to 18,450 feet / 5624 meters

Jour­ney into the famed and spec­tac­u­lar Khum­bu Val­ley for the clas­sic Moun­tain Mad­ness Ever­est Base Camp Trek — but don’t stop there! With the Gokyo Lakes and Ever­est Base Camp Trek, the adven­ture con­tin­ues as you trek over Chola Pass and into the stun­ning Gokyo Val­ley. You’ll explore the source of the grand Dudh Koshi Riv­er, the sparkling lakes, and the 360 panoram­ic views from Gokyo Ri of the sur­round­ing 8000 meter peaks- some say this view is even more spec­tac­u­lar than the view from Kala Pattar!

This chal­leng­ing trek allows you to stay up at high­er alti­tudes for an extend­ed time and soak in the incred­i­ble views and expe­ri­ence a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive of the Ever­est region.This trip includes all of the same great high­lights as our spring trek to base camp, such as the bustling Kath­man­du and Nam­che Bazaar and Kala Pat­tar, but notch­es it up with the walk-up ascent of Gokyo Ri, which offers face-to-face views of Cho Oyu and oth­er stun­ning views of the near­by peaks.

Get off the beat­en path!

Itinerary

Flight Information

The total num­ber of days for your trip includes all trav­el to and from your des­ti­na­tion, with some excep­tions. Dates list­ed on the web­site start with your depar­ture date from the U.S. and include the day you arrive home. For this trip you will need to arrive in Kath­man­du, Nepal on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the U.S. your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Kath­man­du, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3. You will be met at the air­port by a Moun­tain Mad­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trans­ferred to your hotel. 

Your return flight home should be sched­uled for the sec­ond to last day of the itinerary.

Please con­tact our office for any help need­ed with your flight schedule.

Difficulty
