The trek to Everest Base Camp with Gokyo valley provides spectacular views of the Himalayan giants, including Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Nuptse (7861m), Pumori (7161m), Ama Dablam (6812m), and many more. Surrounded by a dazzling scenery, as well as the rich, unique culture of the Sherpa people, it’s no surprise this is the most popular trek in Nepal. Nothing compares to the feeling of being in the presence of the planet’s tallest peak.
The trail passes through lush rhododendron forests of DudhKoshi valley and into Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site that is home to the red panda and the legendary snow leopard, whilst being surrounded with breathtaking views.
The Gokyo Valley is a remote Himalayan valley with secret lakes. In April you can observe the Mani Rimdu dance performed by the local Sherpas in the Monasteries. Once in the park, the trail winds through Sherpa villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pheriche, Lobuche, and GorakShep, before you will eventually arrive at Everest Base Camp at 5364 meters including a short hike to Kala Pattar, from where you’ll catch the sunrise or the sunset opposite Everest.
