Show all Challenging TripsShow all Hotel/Tea House TripsShow all Plane Travel TripsShow all Trekking Trips

This trek not only takes us to Everest Base Camp, but also links Everest to the Gokyo Valley and the beautiful turquoise Lakes adding Lhenjo pass to the Thame Valley which was  the traditional trading route from Tibet.
On a clear day it is possible to see Mt Everest from a different angle upon reaching the 5th Lake in the Gokyo valley. The Gokyo Ri & Lhenjo pass offers the best views in the whole region of the Himalayan range which is just MAGIC!!!!
We start our trip in Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal), taking in a day sightseeing to some of the historical sites in this bustling & colourful city, finishing the day with a traditional dinner and local dancing. After flying to  Lukla we take the same route as the Everest Base Camp trek  visiting schools, Kunde hospital, Buddhist monasteries (including the famous Tengboche Monastery), the Himalayan rescue post of Pheriche and the Italian research station which monitors the glaciers in the region.
Trekking Adventures has built in extra nights at Gorak Shep and Gokyo, which gives everyone the best opportunity to visit both Everest Base Camp & Kala Pattar, the 5th Lake at Gokyo and trek up Gokyo Ri.
