Everest Base Camp-Gokyo valley Trekking

This 18-days Everest Base Camp-Gokyo valley trekking has everything: incredible mountain views from Gokyo-Ri, Kala Patar and Nagartsang peak, fascinating villages, Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, and the culture and hospitality of the Sherpa people who will surely win your hearts. The trek starts from Lukla after a short flight from Kathmandu and you trek up to Nagartsang peak for acclimatization and for a stunning view of Imja valley including Mt. Makalu and Amadablam. You can climb Kala Patar for close views of Mt. Everest and Mt. Pumori. The trail then goes over Cho-la pass (5420m) and continues to the Gokyo valley where you climb to Gokyo-ri for panoramic views of the greatest mountain scenery in the world--including five 8000m giants and a myriad of other peaks of the Khumbu Himal. This is the ultimate Everest trek.
