This trek to the Khumbu region is not an easy one. Based on the foothill of the highest peak of the world, Everest Base Camp Trek has always been one of the best trekking destination to the trekkers. In this customized trek, we move through the Cho La (5,368m) pass and the famous Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Peak (5,480m). The view from the Top of Gokyo provides a 360-degree panoramic view of the entire Khumbu region that is definitely worth some great pictures.
Everest Base Camp Trek with Gokyo Lake and Cho La pass gives the trekkers one of the best all-around views of the Everest region. Moving beside the iconic Dudh (Milk) Koshi River, we move to the Gokyo Valley. Throughout this journey, trekkers will witness the snow giants like Mt. Makalu, Mt. Nutpse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Ama Damblam and many others.
We reach EBC (5,364m) after a short trek from Gorekshsheep. Another major highlight of this trek is the famous KalaPathar (5,545m), the highest point of the trek and perhaps the most suitable place to view the mighty Everest.

The greatest thing about hiring a guide is that you can go carefree and enjoy your stay simply without any stress. This is what I expected from Happyland treks and I haven’t been disappointed. I loved every moment of our stay in Thamel where we met Happy (Bimal) who showed us around the best places to eat and the must-sees of Kathmandu. During the trek we felt very welcomed and comfortable in every tea house, where we were free to choose and eat as much as we wanted. If we decide to go back to do another trek there is no reason why we wouldn’t choose Happyland treks again.
Wonderful walking fantastic view lots of uphill and downhill! had a brilliant time. met few tourist the whole trip. it’s really nice to have guide to know everything and learn more. Thank you so so much!
