The Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo is a journey that, in addition to the already existing aspects of the regular base camp journey, also adds in the visit to the holy Gokyo lakes of the Khumbu. From sapphire blue Himalayan lakes embedded in the very heart of the river valleys shadowed by the peaks to arid landscapes with corroded hill caves, the EBC Trek via Gokyo enchants every trekker and guarantees glorious memories.
Starting the trekking journey from the famous mountain village of Lukla, the trail beautifully winds through the verdant trans-Himalayan landscape of the Everest region to go through popular Sherpa villages and towns like Namche Bazaar and Lobuche. With off-beaten paths added to the journey, like visiting Machhermo and Thangna, the trail then reaches the beautiful turquoise lakes of Gokyo- holy lakes believed to be the abode of the snake gods- the Nagas, by the Hindu people. The serenity of the journey is truly unmatched as the sapphire lakes set against the gorgeous ivory mountain peaks present a sight close to the heavens itself. Moreover, the journey also lets trekkers cross the Cho La Mountain Pass and has highlights like visiting the vantage points of the Gokyo Ri (5360m) and Kalapatthar (5550m). It is a beautiful journey suited for trekkers who want to take a diversion from the regular base camp trek journey to experience the isolated settlements of the Khumbu. The Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo is best suited to do during the months of March to May when the spring season sets amazing blossoms of rhododendrons across the terrain and during the months of September to November when the autumn season presents clear and crisp weather conditions for the best views of the peaks.
