Explore the Gokyo Lakes which lies in the higher elevation of the world and the Everest Base Camp
Is the Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes everything that you want to see? The answer to this question is no. Its trekking trail does not help you to explore the secrets of the Everest Region. Because the region has so many beauties; the region is also vast, and the beauty with the vastness not only has a usual trekking trail, but also the trails that you have never heard of. Therefore, many trekking guides and solitary trekkers take up the Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes. This trek is perfect for them because it comes in his or her radar because it has a solitude trekking trail because it is off the beaten. Also, it has a lot of snow-clad mountains which you have yearned for, and as you head deeper and deeper into Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE, you will see a collection of towering peaks.
As you see these peaks, what happens to you. First, the adrenaline rushes in your blood; second, the curiosity grows more and more; third, you see the peaks that look like the picture of a perfect postcard. Fourthly, you are seeing all these from the solitary trekking trail, which is your favorite.
You believe the journey is a trekking trail. You also believe that the journey should be remembered till the ripe age. And you also believe that the journey should be rewarding even when you are walking aimlessly, and last but not least, the beauty of the journey should make you speechless.

Travel Max Guide includes all lodging, food, and transport during the trek and takes care of all the logistics, allowing you to relax and enjoy the spectacular highlights.
In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others.

Yesterday, we did the trek preparation. We also checked your insurance details, and you should have a copy of your travel medical insurance policy with you. Today, after breakfast, head to the domestic airport. Enjoy 35 minutes scenic mountain flight to Tenzing-Hillary Airport known as Lukla airport. See the wonderful Himalayas, including Everest. Next, we trek to Phakding along with a trekking guide. En route, you come across the Dudh Kosi Valley. If you are interested, then you can visit a monastery in Phakding.
As you follow the Dudh Kosi River and arrive in Tok Tok, you see the stunning view of Thamserku. The trekking trail climbs to Chhumowa and Monjo, and you enter Sagarmatha National Park. See the cascade of waterfalls. Follow the trekking trail that goes uphill and downhill. Villages are widely prevalent with flowers, such as Rhododendron, Magnolia, and fir. Intermingling with nature, you head to Namche. On the way, you get an ample opportunity to see the mountains. You can have a view of Mt. Everest as well as of Nuptse.
Acclimatization means an adaptation for tomorrow’s higher altitude. This does not mean staying in a lodge. For the ultimate view of the mountains, head to the Everest View Hotel, and the view consists of Mt.Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7864m), Ama Dablam (6814m), Kangtega (6783m), Thamserku (6618m), KusumKhang Karda (6370m), Kongde (6086m) and Khumbu, and others. This is a short hike, and hiking is always strenuous in the Everest Region, and the view of the mountains is impressive. You will see a 180-degree view of the mountains, and you will not regret.
The trekking trail goes uphill, but to the forest of rhododendron, juniper, and conifers and takes you to Yak Kharkas and summer settlements. The view of mountains, such as Khumbi Yul Lha (5765m) and Tabuche (6495m) is breath-taking. If you are hungering for Chorten and believe in the reincarnation of Lama, you find today is the perfect day. If you have the dream of the latter, explore Mohang, the birthplace of the re-incarnated Lama of Rongbuk Monastery of Tibet who is believed to have introduced Buddhism in the Everest Region, en route.
Walking on a ridge, you see an excellent view of the valley, Kantega Mountain and Cho-Oyu Mountain. Following the descending trekking trail, you reach rhododendron forest, waterfall, Tongba Village, Dhole, Lhabarma and Luza villages. The trail also takes you to Chorten and offers you a fine view of the Dudh Kosi River. Most of the trail runs by this river. Before reaching Machherma, you descend to the terminal moraine of the Ngozumba glacier.
The trekking trail goes uphill and offers an excellent view of the Khantega Mountain and Cho-Oyu (8,153m). Then, it goes downhill to the terminal moraine of the Ngozumba glacier and then uphill to the first lake. There are many lakes. Longponga is one of the lakes. You will see the second lake and reach Gokyo where there is a third lake. Gokyo Lake is as blue as the sky and displays full of calmness. It glimmers in the sun rays.
You can customize to meet your needs. Acclimatization means an adaptation for tomorrow’s higher altitude. For the ultimate view of the mountains, hike to Gokyo Ri, a viewpoint. This is a short hike, and hiking is always strenuous in the Everest Region. The view of the mountain is impressive. You will see a 180-degree view of the mountains, and you will not regret. Because you will see the breathtaking view of sunrise atop the mountain, including the world’s four highest mountains. This will be an unforgettable memory. Return to Gokyo for breakfast and relax the rest of the day.
The trekking trail today also offers you an option to hike to Gokyo Ri if you had missed yesterday. Follow the trekking trail that goes downhill that takes you to the Ngozumba Glacier. Later, walk along the edge of the mountain, and the meandering trail that takes you to Dragnag. Today’s main highlights are mountains, such as Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, Kangtega, Tabuche, Cholatse, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest, Changtse, and Pumori.
The upper part of the trekking trail is tough; it is steep, and it is unmaintained. The top of the pass is decorated with colorful Buddhist flags. It also offers the view of the pyramidal geometrical shape of Ama Dablam, and soaring Cholatse, Lobuche and Baruntse. From the top, the trail extends downhill. Chola Pass is a difficult trekking route; we must say. Most of the parts of the trail are moderate to adventurous. High altitude will make it difficult to breathe.
Begin walking until you reach the river bed. The trail goes uphill. Travel Max Guide believes that trekking should be more enjoyable. It feels that you have walked more than your capabilities in the passes. If you desire an easy walking, today is the day. The part of the trekking trail that you are walking is grassy. You walk along the moraine of the glacier and the surrounding scenery of Chola Che. The Lobuche Peak is visible. You will also see the stunning view of Pumori.
Today, our top priority is to visit the Everest Base Camp. Hit to the narrow and rocky path. Next up is an area from where you can detour. Your guide will tune with the original trekking trail. Pay a visit to the Italian Pyramid. You also hit rocky dunes, moraines, and streams. There is a glacier on the way, the trail is rocky and windy and offers the stunning view of Mt Pumori. You also head towards the Khumbu Icefall. This part of the trek is difficult because of high altitude and thin air. After you swallow the beauty of Everest Base Camp, you say farewell to it.
When you reach the top of Kalapathar, you will find it full of life because it is the only place in the world for every Everest Lover. Kalapathar is a well-defined viewpoint. Above all, you will see a 360-degree panoramic view of Mt Everest, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbetse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and so on. You follow the downhill trekking trail to Dughla in the Imja valley. It is the only place in the Everest Region where barley is grown.
Trek down to the forest that exemplifies rhododendron and juniper trees with a few magnolia and birch trees. Cross the prayer-flag festooned bridge on the Dudh Koshi River. Have lunch on the way. While trekking, enjoy the exclusive view of Ama Dablam. There are winding trails ahead. As you trek, you will see the last glimpse of Lhotse and Everest. In the hotel, you might see the trekkers of all genres.
Retrace and find out the steps that you have covered. Why not become overwhelmed and cherish at the distance that you have covered? Why not also take the last photo of the Everest Region? You might find this last scene as the awesome scenery of your life, after all, Everest Region is the iconic region, incomparable. You will pass through villages, such as Monjo and Phakding.
Leaving Lukla, you fly to Kathmandu in the morning due to the wind in the afternoon; sometime the flight time can be delayed due to bad weather. In Kathmandu, treat yourself with the facilities of urbanization. Find yourself amid something that you have missed. Splurge along the streets of Thamel. Soak up the best cuisines that Kathmandu offers before you bid farewell to Kathmandu. In the evening, we will have dinner in a Nepali typical restaurant where we can see the cultural dances. Share the joy and experiences of trekking.
In your leisure time, walk around Thamel area to buy the Nepalese souvenirs for your friends and relatives, or you can roam, enter into the narrow streets and enjoy the street foods. In the evening time, Travel Max Guide will organize a farewell dinner in a typical Nepali restaurant with cultural dance.

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.
Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
Hi! it’s me, Anna from Central London, I am a landscape photographer, love to take pictures of landscapes and portraits all around the world. My trip to Nepal was awesome with the TMG guys. TMG managed well during my trip. Plus point is TMG members are also photographers. I worked with the team for 5 weeks on video and photography projects. I highly recommend the TMG team if you want to know beautiful Nepal.
Nepal is the Land of Himalayas! I was been there in 2018 for Annapurna base camp and sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley. It was a good time to spend and learn the real culture of Nepal and its beauty. Travel Max Guide help me to get more lively. Thank you all. Will see you soon.
What we have said, we will provide you all. Please tell us if you need extra. We do not want you only to become happy, but also from happier to the happiest throughout your trip. Having said this, we cannot control the bad weather as well as the other thing, like bandh by the political parties. This thing will lead to a change in your itinerary, but our sole purpose will be to follow it and to take you from one place to another safely. As regards this, we would like to tell you now that you should bring some extra cash for the above situation or for extra days, which are not included in the itinerary, however, it is just like once in a blue moon because Nepal is 99% politically stable country.
Flight delay or cancelation is temporary. It is one of the most unwanted things. There is a reason for flight cancelation, and one of the most obvious reasons is the weather. After all, neither an airline nor should you fly in heavy rain, dense fog, and thunderstorm. Everybody is concerned with their safety. No airline wants to strands its passenger, but this is better than flying in bad weather. It may be sunny in Kathmandu, but in Lukla, there might be heavy snowfall. Please see in our website the trekking seasons because flight delay and cancellation is rare during this time still, the weather cannot be predicted. Therefore, we recommend you to apportion one, or two days in case your flight gets canceled. This is the reason, why we say Travel Insurance is a must so that you can claim to the Insurance Company later.
