The journey to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes is a captivating adventure that begins amidst the vibrant streets of Kathmandu.

This exhilarating flight sets the tone for the adventure that lies ahead, filling the air with expectation and excitement. As the plane touches down in Lukla, trekkers prepare to step into a world of breathtaking vistas and unparalleled experiences.

Once in Lukla, the Everest Base Camp Gokyo Lakes Trek officially commences, and the first leg of the journey leads to Namche Bazaar. This bustling Sherpa town holds a special place in the trek, offering a crucial stop for acclimatization. Here, trekkers immerse themselves in the vibrant Sherpa culture while enjoying awe-inspiring views of Everest and its neighboring peaks. This acclimatization stop is vital for adjusting to the altitude and preparing for the higher elevations that lie ahead. Namche Bazaar provides a glimpse into the unique way of life in the Himalayas and a chance to interact with the resilient Sherpa community.

Ebc and Gokyo Lakes trek is marked by the ascent of Gokyo Ri, a vantage point that rewards trekkers with panoramic views of the Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest glacier in the Khumbu region. The sight of this sprawling glacier is awe-inspiring and adds to the grandeur of the trek. The journey also includes an ascent to Everest base camp via Cho La pass, which is a high-altitude mountain pass that provides an exhilarating trek.

Continuing the Everest Gokyo Lake trekking, the trail takes a mesmerizing detour to the Gokyo Lakes (Gokyo Valley) after Namche Bazaar. This diversion promises a unique and picturesque experience, showcasing the ethereal beauty of the Gokyo Lakes and granting panoramic views of Cho Oyu, the world's sixth-highest mountain. The serene ambiance and stunning reflections in the turquoise waters of the lakes create a captivating spectacle, adding a distinctive flavor to the trek.

Fantastic!

5 stars for Mingmar and his Northern Trekking Team! Everything works well, from the pick up at the airport, over the stay in the hotel and the trek itself. I've done the EBC Chola Gokyo Trek and he knows nearly everybody on the way, what shows, that it's really his second home. Because of this you feel safe and well guided at every moment. He took care of me, as I got a bit problems with the altitude and we discuss the different opportunities for the next days, but in the end we could do the trek like planned. Everything was well planned and if there was something critical, he found a solution. You feel that he's doing it with heart and very personally and not only for money. That's not often given in the trekking business!
In the end I would book again at Northern Trekking Team! :)
