Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek

Beneath the southern slopes of Sagarmatha ( Mt. Everest) lies the rugged and remote land of the Sherpas? Incredibly shaped mountains, whose ice-capped summits rise sharply above sheer rock walls, tower above stone their close association with mountaineering history and exploration.

We start our trek from Lukla. This is a fantastic trek, visiting all of the high valleys of the Khumbu with extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley. Our camp at Gorakshep provides the opportunity to ascend to kalapatter 5,545m for more spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including the black rocky ramparts of Everest's southwest face. We also have a day to visit Everest base camp at the foot of the immensely impressive Khumbu icefall.

Our return journey takes us to Tengboche monastery, the most important center of Buddhism in the area, before descending to Lukla and fly back to Katmandu the next day.
