Everest Base Camp – Cho La – Gokyo Trek – 18 Days

Everest Base Camp – Cho La – Gokyo Trek is the perfect adventure for those looking to get away from the bustle of the crowds and experience the pristine nature and true wilderness of the Everest region. It is a comprehensive trek through the central Khumbu region of Nepal Trek that includes four high altitude climbs.

The trek offers amazing views of four 8000-ers, namely, Everest (8848m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516m) and Cho Oyu (8201m) along with the Khumbu icefall and Ngozumpa glacier. You will also witness the serene Gokyo valley from the fantastic vantage point at Gokyo Ri along with the tranquil waters of the Gokyo Lakes. The trail passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, which is a sanctuary for a variety of endangered Himalayan wildlife including red pandas, snow leopards, musk deer, Himalayan thars, Lophophorus and so on.

A short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla leads to the start of the classic EBC trek. The route follows trails through Sherpa villages beneath towering landscapes to the highest summer village of Gorak Shep: springboard for Base Camp and close Everest views. Once above the tree line, you will be closer to the ice-giants than on any other trail. The trekking days are designed to minimize the risk of AMS by limiting daily altitude increases. Three rest days are included. The first is at Namche Bazaar: explore the town and nearby Khumjung to experience the culture, lifestyle and beliefs of the Sherpa People.
