The Gokyo Lake - Cho La - EBC trek is this region’s ‘high altitude trek.’ After a scenic trans-Himalayan flight to Lukla, follow the Everest trail to Namche Bazaar and an acclimatization day.

Then branch North West to ascend the serene Dudh Koshi Valley to the lake village of Gokyo on the Ngozumpa glacial moraine. Use a rest day to explore the valley. A stiff climb up Gokyo Ri for sunrise offers soaring views over the glacier that include Cho Oyo, Ghyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. Then walk down the valley for an hour and cross the 1km glacier to Tagnag.

Start before sunrise for the tough Cho La ascent and long descent to Lobuche. This can be a difficult, cold but very beautiful trek.

The trail then rises, for two easier days, to Gorak Shep. After lunch, walk to view the ring of peaks surrounding Everest Base Camp, on the Khumbu Glacier – and the ice fall towards the summit.

From Gorak Shep, a sunrise hike up Kala Patthar offers superb views of Everest, the South Col, Nuptse and the glacier below. After breakfast, begin the easier, warmer, four day downward trek to Lukla.

  • Day 05: Namche Bazaar: Acclimatization and exploration day

    This is a scheduled acclimatization day on the trek. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and health experts recommend a stop for at least one extra night. Be active and roam rather than laze around: climb high and sleep low is the acclimatisation advice

    Namche Bazaar has ATMs, cyber cafés, delicious restaurant food and bakeries, plus a colourful market each Friday evening and Saturday morning. Visit the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park Visitor’s Centre on the hillock: with informative displays on Sherpa culture, local flora and fauna

The trail to the right then descends to cross the Dudh Koshi (past water driven prayer wheels) on a suspension bridge near Phunki Thenga (3,250m/10,663ft), the lowest point north of Namche Bazaar. It then enters the Imja Khola Valley and rises steeply, through dwarf conifers and rhododendron forest, for a two hour pull, to the hilltop village of Tengboche

Cross the suspension bridge over the Imja Khola and gradually ascend to Pangboche with views of towering Ama Dablam (6,856m/22,495ft perhaps the most beautiful mountain in the Everest region). The trail then follows the river fairly closely as it gradually rises to its confluence with the Lobuche Khola and continues up to Dingboche: the last year-round Sherpa settlement in the region.

An enjoyable 3-4 hrs side walk, 400m climb to Nangkartshang Gompa, on the ridge north of Dingboche village can be the best choice. This vintage point offers Mt. Makalu (8,463m) fifth highest Mountain in the world to the east and awesome view of Mt. Ama Dablam and valley floor. If you have more energy, continue to Nangkartshang Hill summit (5090m) for additional adventure and thrill

The trail then ascends steeply for an hour, up the gravely terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. On the summit is a large group of stone-pile memorials to lost Sherpas and climbers. It also affords great border-views including Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Pumori. Everest is hidden behind the towering wall of Nuptse and Lhotse. Follow the valley upstream for about an hour to Lobuche

    A long but rewarding day. Follow the windblown and rocky path along the barren moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to the last village at Gorak Shep. After an early lunch, set out on the feint trail to the world’s highest Base Camp, on the Khumbu Glacier: opposite the dreaded icefall – the most dangerous section of an Everest ascent

    In April/May the trail is busy with porters carrying in supplies and the site is a riot of colourful tents perched on the dirty ice. For the rest of the year it is a bleak and lonely place set below the impressive ice walls (and avalanches) of the Mahalangur Himal along the Tibetan border. From west to east, the main peaks are Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse and Nuptse. Everest and the Cwm are hidden behind buttresses

    Trek back to Gorak Shep for the night
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 11: Gorak Shep - Kala Pathar (5,545m/18,192 ft) - Dzonglha (4,830m/15,850ft): 8-9 hrs

    The trail climbs 2/3 hrs. up to Kala Patthar (5545 m/18192 ft) early in the morning to see first day sun light from top of the world (Mt. Everest) This is milestone of the trek to inspect panoramic view with the fantastic sunrise over Mt. Everest, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nupte, Mt. Ama Dablam and many more After accomplish Kala Patthar, trek down to Gorakshep and retrace down to Lobuche. After Lunch, the path to Dzonglha branches off from the main trail some distance from Lobuche. After crossing a stream we come through a fork and later curving round to the wide gravelly river bed of the stream as it flows southwestward, the trail runs across it and climbs the ridge ahead. From the grassy ridge ahead, as the trail runs across to southeast from where we can see soaring heights of Ama Dablam and Kangtega-Thamserku while Tawache looms prominently ahead. Pheriche village is also visible down in the valley floor. As the ridge veers northward, the vast Cho La Lake spreads below Mt. Cholatse . The lake stays with us over a long stretch until we descend to a wide basin. The trail climbs up a spur and descends steeply to another broad basin. After an hour walk transverse from the basin and shortly after crossing a wobbly bridge, we reach Dzonglha

    Overnight in Dzonglha at Lodge
    Meal: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 12: Dzonglha - Cho La (5420m/17,778ft) - Thangnak (4,680m/15,350ft) - Gokyo (4,800m/15,580ft): 9-10 hrs

    Early morning as we get out of our lodge we are greeted by the mesmerizing sight of Cholatse looming over. Today is going to be one of the toughest days of our trip. The walk begins as we transverse through a spur extending westward from Dzongla. The path descends to a basin across which meanders a murmuring stream crusted with ice at places. In about an hour, we reach the top of the basin readying for the triumph on ChoLa. As we gain height, the view back gets increasingly more captivating; the Cho La Lake begins to appear and the Ama Dablam in its pyramidal incarnation presides over a range of mountains on the south as Cholatse soars on the west. Climbing the incline is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to scramble. We need to be alert as rocks can be glazed by ice. The final climb to the ChoLa can be a little tricky as the trail curves round the bergschrund. Upon reaching the top, we see prayer flags, strung across cairns, flapping in the strong wind. Scenery of majestic peaks in all directions is breathtaking. Although long, the path leading down to Thangnak can be easily made out from the pass because it is just decent but can be hazardous if rocks are glazed by ice, a bit of cautiousness is needed. We reach Thangnak, a rather more substantial hamlet with a small village. Stepping out of the settlement, we are greeted by fabulous mountain views. The trail brings us to the Ngozumpa glacier edge after short walk, which is longest glacier in Nepal. Reaching the other side of the glacier, we get view of the second of the Gokyo lakes on the series of six lakes. A short distance away is the third Gokyo Lake. On the edge of this lake stands the Gokyo Village where we finally give rest to our tired body

    Overnight in Gokyo at Lodge
    Meal: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 13: Rest and explore Gokyo Ri

    The views in the Gokyo region are tremendous. For the best view, climb Gokyo Ri (5350 m) the small peak above the lake. The peak of 5350m is sometime called Kala Pathar (not to be confused with the Kala Pathar above Gorakshep, though the view is similar) It is a two- hours climb to the top of the peak, providing a panoramic view of Cho Oyu, Gyanchung King, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse, Tawache and many more. Those with more time and energy can make a trip up the valley to another lake, marked with the name Ngazumpa on the maps, or even beyond to a fifth lake. There are several small peaks in this in this region that offer vantage points for the surrounding peaks and views of the Nangpa La, the old trade route into Tibet.

    Overnight in Gokyo at Lodge
    Meal: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 14: Gokyo – Phortse (3,810m/12,500 ft): 5km, 5-6 hrs

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 15: Phortse – Monjo (2,835m /8,500ft): 12km, 4-5 hrs
