Overview

“Unbeknownst to most travelers, the high-altitude Gokyo Lakes shimmer and freeze beneath the towering edifice of the mighty Ngozumpa glacier.

With Alpine Ramble Treks, exploring the length and breadth of the Khumbu has never been more rewarding.”

 

RISE THE ULTIMATE HIMALAYAN CHALLENGE ON OUR EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK WITH GOKYO LAKE

Nepal’s Everest Base Camp Trek is the stuff of high adventure: soaring Himalayan peaks capped with permanent glaciers, forested slopes wreathed in rolling fog, and cold rivers tumbling from the mountains' heights to the lowlands' forests.

It’s no wonder that this epic hiking itinerary has earned a place on the bucket list of just about every international traveler with an eye for adventure. But what if you’re looking for something a little more challenging?

At Alpine Ramble Treks, we’ve combined our classic Everest Base Camp Trek with an even more thorough exploration into the heartlands of the Khumbu region, where you’ll discover the high-altitude Gokyo lakes in a setting of astonishing beauty.

Suppose you have the drive and ambition to travel beyond the well-trodden trails of Sagarmatha National Park. In that case, you won’t want to miss the spectacular experiences that await you on this unforgettable Himalayan trekking itinerary. 

 

LACE-UP HIKING BOOTS & EXPERIENCE ONE OF THE BEST TREKS ON THE PLANET 

The Everest Base Camp Trek is rightly regarded as one of the finest hiking itineraries on the planet, and any expedition into the Khumbu is guaranteed to be the experience of a lifetime. You’ll encounter friendly Sherpa locals, visit historic Buddhist monasteries, and walk beneath the summits of the world’s tallest mountains.

By extending your Everest trek with an expedition to the high-altitude Gokyo Lakes, you’ll also have the rare opportunity to reach lonely mountain passes with spectacular alpine views, hike along the shore of cold lakes sparkling azure in the morning sun, and earn the bragging rights that come along with conquering one of the toughest trails in the Himalayas.

From the airport town of Lukla to the phenomenal viewpoints of Kala Patthar and Cho La, you’ll see the very best that Khumbu has to offer. Best of all, you can complete this itinerary in just two weeks under the guidance of the experts at Alpine Ramble Treks.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON THE EBC TREK VIA GOKYO LAKE 

Our adventure begins with an unforgettable flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, with the entirety of the Khumbu region spreading out beneath the wings of our plane. From Lukla, we’ll trace the riverbanks of the Dudh Koshi to reach the historic Sherpa trading center of Namche Bazaar. Over the course of our expedition, we’ll visit the celebrated monastery at Tengboche, climb to 5,545 meters at the lookout point of Kala Patthar, and reach Everest Base Camp itself.

And because we’ve combined the Everest Base Camp Trek with the Gokyo Lakes Trek, we’ll also venture beyond the base camp to climb the high-altitude pass of Cho La. We’ll descend into the Gokyo region to discover its most stunning alpine lakes, set against the backdrop of the magnificent Ngozumpa glacier.

We’ll even ascend to the viewpoint of Gokyo Ri to enjoy what just might be the best view in the entirety of the Khumbu. If this sounds like the trek of your dreams, reach us via WhatsApp at +977 9851175531.

BEST SEASON OF THE YEAR FOR THIS TREK

Weather in the Himalayas is variable, and the arrival of the summer monsoon usually determines the best trekking seasons. To avoid the wettest conditions, many hikers travel during the spring, which occurs from February to March. This is the time of year when wildflowers are in bloom, and temperatures are at their most comfortable.

Trekkers might prefer to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes during the autumn season, between September and November. This is perhaps the best time of year for crisp days and clear mountain views.

Winter treks to Everest Base Camp are also possible, but snowfall accumulation on the mountain pass of Cho La may render the Gokyo Lakes inaccessible. We also typically recommend against hiking the Everest Base Camp Trek during summer. Suppose your schedule only allows you to visit Nepal during the summer or winter.

In that case, Alpine Ramble Treks will happily arrange a customized itinerary to plan the most rewarding adventure possible.

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK WITH GOKYO LAKE DIFFICULTY 

The Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes package represents a challenging hiking itinerary with a maximum elevation of more than 5,000 meters. You’ll be walking for six or seven hours each day, and the trail ascends and descends as it winds through countless side valleys and high-altitude mountain passes.

For these reasons, you should be healthy and physically fit before embarking on this trek. Walking, running, and other forms of cardiovascular exercise are great ways to prepare for the opportunity to visit the high-altitude Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp.

An expert guide from Alpine Ramble Treks will also be assigned to watch over you, monitor your progress and condition, and shepherd you safely from Lukla to Gokyo—and back again.

 

THE ALTERNATIVE WAY OF THIS TREK

If our Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes isn’t quite what you’re looking for, Alpine Ramble Treks has plenty of Everest trekking alternatives here in Khumbu. Consider our 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek or our eight-day alternative option.

And if you’re only here on a brief visit, you can still enjoy the splendor of the world’s tallest mountain by booking our Everest Helicopter Tour or Scenic Everest Flight. With convenient departures from Kathmandu, these day trips are a fantastic way to get up close and personal with Mt. Everest when you’re short on time. We can also arrange for trips to any other region of Nepal, like the fantastic Annapurnas or the exciting Langtang region.

Itinerary

Expand all +Collapse all -

Welcome to Nepal! When your flight arrives at the Tribhuvan International Airport, a representative from Alpine Ramble Treks will be waiting to meet you. After clearing customs, we’ll whisk you away to your hotel in the city. Kathmandu lies at approximately 1,300 meters above sea level, so you don’t need to spend much time here for acclimatization purposes before heading off into the mountains. But no trek in Nepal would be complete without sampling the intoxicating sights and sounds of the country’s capital city. From the crowded bazaars of the Thamel district to the hilltop stupa of Swayambhunath, Kathmandu is a feast for the senses. You’ll be awestruck at this urban maze of crowded streets, bustling markets, scenic hilltops, and Buddhist and Hindu shrines on every street corner. Depending on the time of your arrival, you may have some time to explore the city before returning to your hotel for the night.

  • Accommodation: Hotel Thamel Park
  • Meal: Breakfast (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 1,350m/4,429ft

It’s time to start our adventure! We’ll catch an early morning flight to the little town of Lukla, where the Everest Base Camp Trek begins. This is sure to be one of the most scenic flights of your life, so make sure to keep your camera at the ready. When we touch down at Lukla, we’ll meet up with the rest of our expedition team, including the hard-working porters who make trekking in Nepal possible. Our itinerary today will serve as a gentle introduction to the rigors—and thrills—of hiking in the high Himalayas. We’ll be on our feet for about three hours, beginning with a brief descent to the smaller village of Cheplung. Soon we’ll find ourselves crossing suspension bridges draped in prayer flags, spanning the rushing waters of the Dudh Koshi river. Listen for the tinkling of small bells as caravans of yaks and horses carry goods and supplies to Lukla. Our destination today is Phakding, where we’ll settle in at the best available teahouse and enjoy our first night in the mountains.

Please note: Your flight to Lukla may depart from the Ramechhap Airport in Manthali rather than Kathmandu, due to ongoing upgrades at the Tribhuvan International Airport. Alpine Ramble Treks will keep you apprised of the situation and arrange any necessary additional transportation via microbus.

  • Accommodation: Khumbu Lodge/ Azalia Hotel
  • Hiking Hrs: 3-4 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 2,800m/9,187ft

The Khumbu region encompasses the highest and wildest territories in all of Nepal, and the waypoints of the Everest Base Camp Trek have acquired something of a legendary reputation in mountaineering circles. Today, we’ll make for the most important village in the Khumbu: Namche Bazaar. Setting off from Phakding, we’ll climb past the Dudh Koshi and ascend into woodlands of fir and rhododendron, emerging at last onto the first of many truly spectacular Himalayan viewpoints. All told, today’s section of the Everest Base Camp Trek should take us about five hours to complete. When we arrive at Namche Bazaar, you’ll be more than ready to sit down and get some rest. Namche itself sprawls against a colossal mountainside, fairly sandwiched between the skyscraping peaks of Kongde Ri and Thamserku. It’s one of the most iconic spots in the Himalayas, and the town is full of bakeries, markets, and even museums where you can learn about Sherpa culture. Tonight’s accommodations will be at a comfortable trekking lodge in town.


Note: We usually build an extra day here at the Namche Bazaar for acclimatization (Optional) if the time permits and our buddy need it!

  • Accommodation: Skaura/ Alpine Lodge
  • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3,438m/11,280ft

As we reach higher and higher altitudes, it will be essential to allow time for our bodies to adjust to the thinner atmosphere. We’ll spend today in Namche Bazaar, acclimatizing to the altitude and enjoying everything this quirky trading hub offers. The town is actually known for its bakeries, which deserve accolades for producing mouth-watering pastries at high altitudes. You can also visit the Sherpa Culture Museum or take a short hike to enjoy the viewpoints from Syangboche Airport or the Hotel Everest View. However you choose to spend the day, time spent at Namche Bazaar is never wasted—and you certainly won’t go hungry. Tonight, we’ll return to our lodge to enjoy a second night here in town.

  • Accommodation : Sakura/ Alpine Lodge
  • Trekking time: 2-3 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3,438 m / 11,280 ft

Are you ready for a challenging hike? While higher altitudes await us on the approach to Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Lakes, today’s net altitude gain still exceeds 400 meters. That means we’ll want to take it slow and steady, trekking through a forest of pine to gain incredible views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Nupste. Next, we’ll actually descend through the woodlands of Sagarmatha National Park to cross a suspension bridge before climbing once again. Our trail then doubles back on itself over a series of switchbacks as it leads into Tengboche, where we’ll stop for the night and check ourselves into one of the best available lodges. The principal attraction of this high-altitude village is undoubtedly the Tengboche Monastery, famous for its striking location in the heart of the mountains. It’s also the largest gompa in Khumbu—don’t miss your chance to step inside and see its historic artwork. You might even have the privilege of attending the monastery’s daily prayers.

  • Accommodation: Himalaya/ Buddha Lodge
  • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3,870 m /12,697 ft

After savoring some Tibetan bread and butter tea for breakfast in sight of the mighty Himalayan mountains, we’ll set off for another day of hiking on the Everest Base Camp Trek. The first point of interest on today’s itinerary will be the village of Deboche, which lies just past Tengboche. Here, we’ll find an especially impressive example of a classic mani wall built from hundreds of individual stones, each of which is inscribed with the ubiquitous Buddhist mantra: om mani padme hum. Moving on, we’ll pass through the village of Pangboche and climb stone staircases to draw ever nearer to the mighty Ama Dablam, seeing different aspects of the mountain as our trail twists and turns across the Khumbu. We’ll also get a little tease from Mount Everest itself, with the edge of the mountain peeking out from behind a ridge in the foreground. Our trail today ends in the comparatively larger town of Dingboche after about four or five hours of trekking.

Note: We usually build an extra day here at the Namche Bazaar for acclimatization (Optional) if the time permits and our buddy needs it!

  • Accommodation: Good luck lodge
  • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 4,360m/14,305ft

We’ve now reached the point on our Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary where our bodies need another day to adjust to the increased elevation. As always, the trekker’s maxim is “climb high, sleep low.” This means that we can safely ascend to the stunning vantage points of Nagarjun Hill or Chukhung Village before returning to Dingboche in the afternoon. Both of these day hikes afford superlative views of Makalu, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and other Himalayan mountains. This evening, you’ll want to get a bite to eat at one of the bakeries or cafes in town. Later, watching the sunset over the windswept peaks of the mountains and the stone-walled terraces of Dingboche will make for an exquisite memory that you’ll return to again and again.

    Our path today traces the line of the valley northwest, leading us further into the heart of the Khumbu. We’ll find ourselves ascending steeply, following the switchbacks of the Everest Base Camp Trek to reach the high-altitude pass of Thukla. The pass stands at approximately 4,800 meters in elevation, and the view is nothing short of stupendous, with stunning panoramas of the Himalayas rising to meet us from every direction. There’s also a memorial built here to honor the mountaineers who perished on their pursuit of the highest peaks of the Himalayas; after paying our respects, we’ll descend from the pass and continue on to Lobuche. The village itself is a small cluster of guesthouses and kitchens set in the midst of jaw-dropping Himalayan scenery. After checking into our lodge, we’ll have the rest of the afternoon and evening at our leisure. The nighttime ambiance at Lobuche is especially enchanting: the sun sets over the mountains with surprising rapidity, and the warm glow of electric lights suffuses the atmosphere.

    • Accommodation: Oxygen Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: Motherhouse Lodge

    Today is the big day! We’ll set out by hiking along the Khumbu Glacier, following a slow and gentle ascent into the heart of the mountains. This section of the Everest Base Camp Trek covers about five miles, and there are some scree-covered slopes standing between us and the settlement of Gorak Shep. We’ll stop here to catch our breath before pressing on to base camp itself, ascending through a bowl of skyscraping Himalayan peaks before arriving at our destination. If you’re trekking during the climbing season, base camp is sure to be a busy hub of mountaineers and trekkers alike, contributing to the communal atmosphere at the foot of the world’s highest mountain. After celebrating our remarkable accomplishments and feasting our eyes on the spectacular scenery, we’ll retrace our steps to Gorak Shep, where we’ll enjoy some hard-earned rest and a hot meal before bed.

    • Accommodation: Himalaya Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 5,364m/17,599ft

    You’ve already been to Everest Base Camp, but our adventures in Khumbu are far from over. In fact, the views you’ll earn today from the high-altitude vantage point of Kala Patthar will eclipse anything you’ve seen so far. We’ll start with an early-morning hike, taking about two hours to climb Kala Patthar and arriving just in time for a Himalayan sunrise. It’s no exaggeration to say that the alpine panorama here is the best in the world; there’s no better place to get a good look at Mount Everest, especially with the risen sun breaking over the peaks and crags of the icebound Khumbu. After savoring this life-changing sight to its fullest, we’ll head back down the mountain, pick up our bags at Gorak Shep, and continue trekking in the direction of Dzongla. We should reach the village after about four or five hours on the trail, and we’ll want to get plenty of rest tonight to prepare for tomorrow’s exciting climb to the mountain pass of Cho La.

    • Accommodation: Local Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 5,545m/18,187ft

    Another high-altitude destination awaits us this morning: after a fortifying breakfast, we’ll strike out for the lofty pass of Cho La. This is an incredibly challenging section of our Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes itinerary, where the flat ground of the valley swiftly transforms into a steep ascent. We’ll stop to rest periodically as we cross a glacial moraine and climb to the pass, and our efforts will be rewarded with sublime Himalayan vistas stretching to the horizon. After taking in the view, we’ll descend carefully on the other side of the pass, navigating the scree-covered terrain. From here, we’ll continue trekking through a wilderness of towering summits and barren hills before arriving at Thangnak, or Dragnag. At this point in our expedition, we’ve almost reached the spectacular Gokyo Lakes—but we’ll stop here in Thangnak for a good night’s rest.

    • Accommodation: Local Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: (5420m) - Chola La

    It’s time to set out for the Gokyo Lakes at last! After breakfast this morning, we’ll set off through a fogbound, lunar landscape of brown and gray stone for approximately three or four hours. When the clouds drift away from the mountaintops under the glare of the sun, rows upon rows of Himalayan peaks will reveal themselves with unparalleled grandeur. We’ll cross another glacier before arriving at Gokyo, a village that’s sure to take your breath away. The town is situated right along the sandy, rocky shores of Gokyo Tso, arguably the most beautiful of the high-altitude Gokyo Lakes. After choosing our teahouse for tonight’s accommodations, you’ll have the afternoon free to relax, explore the village, and enjoy endless cups of tea in one of Khumbu’s most beautiful alpine communities. Consider taking a stroll around the lake to make the most of your time here in Gokyo.

    • Accommodation: Local Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 5 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 4800 m

    We’ll need to get a very early start this morning, checking the batteries on our headlamps and flashlights and hiking off into the darkness. As with Kala Patthar, our goal is to reach the summit of this scenic mountain viewpoint just in time for sunrise. The trek should take us about three or four hours, with the topmost summits of the Himalayas beginning to reveal themselves in the predawn glow right as we arrive. The panoramic view from Gokyo Ri ranks among the best in all of Nepal, and the added bonus of the ice-blue Gokyo Lakes shimmering under the morning sun is sure to be a highlight of your Everest trek. From here, the descent back to Gokyo should only take about an hour. We’ll have breakfast, pick up our bags, and set off down to the trail to our next destination: Dole. After this morning’s demanding hike, this is a comparatively easy stroll along the Dudh Koshi river; we should arrive in Dole after approximately four hours.

    • Accommodation: Local Lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 5370m - Gokyo Ri

    All good things must come to an end, and it’s time to start rewinding our way through the highlands of the Khumbu. From Dole, we’ll steadily lose altitude; you may have already noticed that the town is set amidst far more greenery and plant life than we’ve seen for the past few days. But we’re still covering brand-new territory, and today’s hike to Namche Bazaar will be packed with plenty of splendid scenery. We’ll trek through rhododendron forests, stop to take pictures of waterfalls coursing down sheer rock faces and enjoy a pleasant lunch in the village of Mong La along the way. When we arrive in Namche Bazaar, we’ll get checked in at a local trekking lodge and take the rest of the day to relax. This is a perfect opportunity to check out the local bakeries, visit the Sherpa Culture Museum, and grab a few souvenirs to commemorate your Everest trek.

    • Accommodation: Sakura lodage / similar
    • Hiking Duration: 6-7 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 3410 m

    On the penultimate day of our Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes, we’ll make the final tour from Namche Bazaar back to Lukla. By now, you’ll have noticed that we can move much faster when we’re losing altitude—but you won’t want to rush this last stretch of your trek in Nepal. The beauty of the Khumbu is as enchanting as ever, even in reverse, and you’ll want to savor your last look at the region's mountains, forests, waterfalls, and friendly people. Soon, we’ll find ourselves in Phakding, where we made our first stop on this Everest trek. After catching some rest and having a bite to eat, we’ll press on to Namche. We should arrive after about five or six hours of hiking in total, and we’ll get checked in at our guesthouse before having the afternoon to explore the town and enjoy a celebratory meal with our entire hiking team. Some of our porters will be staying here in Lukla—please be sure to bid them a fond farewell.

    • Accommodation: North face or similar lodge
    • Hiking Duration: 5-6 hrs approx
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
    • Max. Altitude: 2830m

    As our plane lifts from the dramatic runway at Lukla and we soar over the most spectacular landscapes in the country once again, you may already be planning your next trek in Nepal. When we arrive in Kathmandu, you’ll have one last opportunity to shop for unique souvenirs and handicrafts in the local markets before your outgoing flight. We’ll transfer you to the Tribhuvan International Airport in plenty of time for your departure—and if you’re staying in Nepal, we’d be happy to arrange another trek, any number of adventure activities, or even a jungle safari. Whatever your plans, we’re thrilled that you’ve chosen Alpine Ramble Treks to be your guide on the Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes. We can’t wait to see you again!

    Please note: Due to ongoing upgrades at the Tribhuvan International Airport, your flight to Lukla may depart from the Ramechhap Airport in Manthali rather than Kathmandu. Alpine Ramble Treks will keep you apprised of the situation and arrange any necessary additional transportation via microbus.

      Dil Gurung is a safe pair of hands. This summarizes what he does in a nutshell. He has fantastic emotional quotient and is attentive to detail and to every single member of his expedition client team. I would go back with him to the Nepali Himalayas any time. I would endorse him as an excellent guide for an international audience. It is great to see that his enterpreneurship has led him to set up his own outfit. His maturity and conscientiousness are remarkable.

      Dil is an incredible guide with such attention to detail and focus on making your experience as comfortable and amazing as possible. Great for a good conversation and experienced enough to handle any situation. I've trekked with Dil a number of times and now consider him part of my Nepali family!
