The trek route for the day is comfortable, following a gradual trail with few ups and downs, all surrounded by the magnificence and charm of the great Himalayas of Nepal. If you are further lucky, on the way we can also spot wild lives like the Himalayan pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar.

The trek route from Namche Bazaar till Kyangjuma is  almost flat and a slight descend. The route follows till Sansa from where the trail splits. One goes to Gokyo valley, while the other one to the Everest Base Camp. From Sanasa, the trek is simple through the pine forests and crosses yet another bridge over the Dudh Koshi River to bring us to Phunki Thenga - a small commercial settlement with a few tea-houses and an army post.

With views of Cholatse, Nuptse and Thamserku, Dughla is a nice place to be in and ideal for slowing our pace to the Everest Base Camp as we are trekking above 4500 meters. This will reduce our exertion and maximize our chances of better acclimatization.

After enjoying the view, we then climb up steeply along the Changri Glacier. There we get the first sight of Kala Patthar beneath Pumori. Gorak Shep is a place where you are surrounded by snow cladded mountains all round, including the top of the world - Mt. Everest.

The dusk view from Kala Patthar is more honorable than the dawn view, so it is proposed to visit Kala Patthar today amid nightfall. As the setting sun's beams strike the snow topped mountains the subsequent view is incredible.

We begin well in time post lunch to get the sensational perspectives of the surrounding view from Kala Patthar seeing the last light of the day reflecting on Mount Everest. Recognizable peaks, to the likes of Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower toward the east even as Everest uncovers itself between the west shoulder peak and Nuptse. Amid the climb to Kala Patthar, we rest multiple times to catch for some breath as it is a demanding climb, and also to capture few extraordinary perspectives of the mountains.

After a strenuous climb for some hours, we reach Kala Patthar. We scramble few rough patches and reach the summit set apart by cairns and prayer flags. As we are on the top, we enjoy some of the most unimaginable Himalayan Panorama, meandering relentlessly between one massif and then onto the next. We take the greatest number of pictures as we can and bring seep in the perspective - a moment to last lifetime.

EBC With Gokyo Lakes - An Elaborate Description

The Trek to the Everest Base Camp combined with Gokyo Lakes are a way to completely live the rich experience of trekking in the Everest region. While trekking to the Everest Base Camp is beautiful and enchanting experience and is popular too, the trek to the much silent, calmer and even more beautiful Gokyo Lakes completes your experience of wandering in these regions of Nepal.

The trek to Everest Base Camp takes you closer to the mountain, but completing it with a trek to the Gokyo Lakes adds to your experience of witnessing the 'mountain of glory' from the other side as well. Rather, the views of Mt. Everest from Gokyo Ri Summit and Beyond Gokyo 5th lakes are one of the most complete, full-up, unbelievable, and breathtaking. The trek to reach the Gokyo Lakes itself is a thrilling and challenging one involving negotiating the high pass of Cho La and the crossing the vast Ngozumpa Glacier, which is considered to be the longest glacier in The Nepal Himalayas.

The pristine lakes of Gokyo are just something to fall in love with straight away. Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, stands right in front of all the six lakes of the Gokyo region. Brahminy ducks in the first lake remain there even in winters.. The sounds of Himalayan snow cock will tease your ears. The region has 6 visible lakes.. otherwise, gokyo lakes are 19 interconnected lakes.Ngozumba glacier - the longest glacier of the Nepal Himalayas ( 36 kilometers ) blows your mind off with its vast and rough terrain. Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Nirekha and other peaks stands tall on the other side of the glacier, luring your imaginations. Strong wind blows often in the region. Here the views are surreal !!

The Everest Gokyo Circuit Trek offers stunning views of Mount Everest from all round, firstly from the Khumbhu Region and the from the Ngozumpa valley.  On this trek, you do not just view the classic mountain from a distance, but you trek to its base camp from where, lots of mountaineers from different parts of the World, take their steps on to the mountain, to reach its summit. Walking the trails through Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorakshep and then to Everest Base Camp, this is for sure a trek you must do to gift yourself an experience for a lifetime !!

Further, to add to your experience, you trek to Dzongla, from where you will tackle the mighty Chola pass to take yourself to the surreal valley of Gokyo. The mere sight of the Vast Ngozumpa glacier will blow off your mind !! 

On this trek we also summit the famous and strategic Kalapatthar and Gokyo Ri. The truth is, Mt. Everest is not clearly viewed from the Everest Base Camp and is blocked. So a climb to Kalapatthar is much desired which offers grands views all round. The views from the top of Kalapatthar and Gokyo Ri can't just be spoken in few words. From here, you get to witness the grand vista of the tallest mountains in the world. At 5554 meters, this is also the highest point of the trek. Views of Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse during sunrise or sunset will be to your soul's contentment.

Apart from the stunning mountains, trekking in the Kumbhu region is also about lots of other elements and experiences. To mention few, its the Sherpa way of life, their hardship and happiness, The Buddhism pf Peace and enlightenment, the beautiful rhododendrons, local cuisines, and lots more...

Customized Private Group For EBC With Gokyo Lakes

Trekking is a very personal activity and is perhaps one of the very few activities that give you enough time to indulge with yourself or your beloved people, group of special friends, or close family members. It helps you transform personal bonds to the next level as it brings out everyone's best and truest self. Trekking is most enjoyed when it is done in a small private group, personalized to serve your specific needs. The Himalayas are best experienced when there is silence and solitude around and when you are surrounded only by your best people. Your trek is most enjoyable when all the pain of arranging a smooth trek is taken care of by us, and you focus just on your trek and yourself. Most importantly, a small private trekking group is very flexible, personalized and more enjoyable, is the safest and follows the principles of Sustainable and Responsible Tourism. We specialize in and are more popular for arranging Small Customized Private Trekking Groups to the Himalayas. Enquire For Customized Private Trek





INTERNATIONAL GUESTS: Trek cost for foreigners is slightly higher than the cost for our Indian guests, mainly due to the higher permit fee applicable for admission to National Parks or protected forest areas. Sometimes, it may be higher due to higher local crew wages and other specific arrangements we make to ensure a safe, comfortable and enriching travel experience in India. However, we absolutely DO NOT 'hyper-charge' our International guests ever and at the same time, ensure that we meet all the standards for highly qualified trek leaders and guides, safety, medical preparation, evacuation strategy, rescue arrangements, eco-sensitive travel, high-value knowledge sharing about the area and customs of the locals. 

Extra Cost For International Trekkers: Rs. 10000 per person.




 

Booking Process: Booking can only be done after multiple communitation via email / Whatsapp / Calls. After finalization, booking fees can be paid online or through direct bank transfers. International Trekkers can pay the partial booking fees using PayPal, Transferwise, Western Union or Direct Wire Transfer.
