Our Everest Base Camp and Gokyo trek begins with a scenic flight to your trek point. The next day you hit the trails through some pretty little villages till you reach the Sherpa capital of Namche. This high up town is a gateway to the region, a rest point to prepare for higher altitudes. Getting familiar with heights for a trek of this kind is important for the body. Meanwhile, our next goal the following day is the epic point of our journey. In other words, we head up the dizzying heights of the towering Kalapathar at 5545m. This is the highest point in our trip which takes us so close to famous Mt. Everest. The 360 degree views from this point leave us out of breath for a few seconds. Above all, it’s a moment that will remain in our memories for as long as it takes. This is where the curtains drop to an amazing Everest Base Camp and Gokyo trek.
The next 3 days take us through warm friendly villages as we experience Sherpa mountain culture at its best. For a different experience, you can try our Everest Base Camp helicopter trek for 10 days. Your trip is best done with ‘Nepal Trekkers’ who know the lay of this area better than most others.
