Deluxe Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek-19 days >> The Best trekking holiday package in Nepal
What exactly is the Deluxe Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek? What distinguishes it as deluxe?
The Deluxe Gokyo Lake Everest Base Camp Trek is a 19-day,the most popular moderate-level trek in the Everest region. This trek joins two beautiful trekking areas of the Khumbu region—the Gokyo lake area and the Everest base camp area. In other words, this is a bit longer trekking route than our deluxe Everest base camp trek. The best part of this trek is that you will trek up to Namche Bazaar and then follow the trail to Gokyo Lake. After a well-deserved excursion to Gokyo Ri (5420m), hiking the highest view point in the Gokyo valley, you will trek toward Portse, a beautiful sherpa village, and meet the direct trail to Everest base camp and Kalapatthar at Pangboche. Alternatively, this trek can go over the Chola pass to Everest base camp, but we follow the trekking route down to Pangboche and then follow the regular trail to Everest base camp.
Since we are not going to cross the Chola pass on this trek, the Deluxe Gokyo Lake Everest base camp trek is suitable for any aged group of trekkers with minimum physical fitness and full mental preparedness. During the whole trek, we accommodate you at the best available deluxe lodges where there are attached bathrooms and hot showers. This 3-week trek of Gokyo valley and Kala Patthar plus Everest base camp offers the best trekking and hiking experience in Nepal.
