From mountains and vistas to rich cultural experiences, the trek to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo has it all. Although there’s nothing really at the Base Camp, the views from Kala Pattar and Gokyo Ri make this trek worthwhile.
The trek begins in Lukla, like all other standard Everest treks. From Lukla you’ll trek along a trail into the Dudh Koshi valley, through several dozen villages, yak pastures, rhododendron forests, suspension bridges and more suspension bridges. On your way to Everest, you’ll stop at Namche Bazaar, a famous town where backpackers and climbers flock to in droves during peak trekking seasons, especially in October. Usually most trekkers reach Namche Bazaar on the second day of their trek. The hike to Namche, however, is quite challenging and is a test of stamina, since the trail is long and gets quite steep in the final stretch.
After spending two nights in Namche for acclimatization, you’ll walk for two more days before reaching Gokyo, one of the most dramatic and interesting valleys in the Everest region. Once in Gokyo, you can also climb Gokyo Ri (5360m) for a panoramic view of all of the region’s eight thousanders including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu.
After crossing over Cho La Pass, the trail heads up to Gorak Shep (5,165m) and finally Kala Pattar (5,550m). Gorak Shep, is the Base Camp of the historical 1953’ Everest Expedition and the site where Peace Nepal Treks had successfully organised the 2009’ Everest Cricket Match. You’ll get two days around Gorak Shep, the base camp and Kala Pattar. There’s nothing interesting about the base camp and Everest cannot be seen clearly from there. The best views of Everest can be seen from the summit of Kala Pattar – a hill that looks like a small brown “bump” on the landscape when compared to the dominating snow giants above it. From Gorak Shep you’ll retrace back to Namche and then to Lukla and take a “hair-raising” flight to get back to Kathmandu.
