About Trip -

Everest Base Camp Trekking via Gokyo Lakes with Pink Mountain Treks and Expedition recognized for the series of beautiful turquoise lakes in the Gokyo valley and the famous Cho La Pass, takes us through the landmarks of the Khumbu region in the company of majestically soaring mountains, friendly Sherpas, colorful monasteries, the Namche Bazaar, the Sagarmatha National Park, and, of course, to the base of the mighty Everest. The trek in advancing to the base of the world's tallest mountain maps out spectacular vistas from such celebrated viewpoints like Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar and then encounters the sight of the thrilling Khumbu Icefall. Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes, in a nutshell, will be a lifetime experience with the enthralling sights of Mt. Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Nuptse, Amadablam, Pumori, and Tengboche Monastery - the largest monastery in the Khumbu region.

Everest base camp trekking via Gokyo Lakes caters an opportunity to tread relatively an offbeaten trail to the base camp of Everest and Kalapattar. However, walking along the offbeat path is more challenging than the classic Everest Base Camp Trail because of elevated Cho La Pass inbetween two incredible valleys of Everest Region- Gokyo and Khumbu.

Everest Base Camp Trekking via Gokyo begins at Lukla and winds through Sherpa Villages like Namche, Khumjung and Machhermo among others all the way up to Gokyo Lakes. The cluster of fresh water lakes at Gokyo blends so well with the gigantic mountains at their backdrops that Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo at this point seems to surpass the wonderful moments of classic Everest Base Camp trail. The latter half of Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo crosses Cho La Pa 5363m to enter Khumbu Valley and chase the popular EBC Trail to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapattar.
