Often, most trekkers want to go for Everest Base Camp Trek crossing Gokyo Valley since it is one of the popular valley located in Khumbu Region Nepal. If you want Everest trek via Gokyo Trek, it generally takes 18 days to complete the trek. It is obviously one most adventurous trekking route of the world. Everest Base Camp Via Gokyo Trek offers fabulous experience of majestic snow-capped mountain peaks, Buddhist monasteries, Ngojumba Glacier, the famous chola pass etc including Sherpa indigenous habitats and their culture. Moreover, number of blue lakes of Gokyo valley, poetic monasteries, Sagarmatha National Park, popular cho la pass, the Sherpa village (Namche Bazaar) are the major attractions that we cross to reach on our ultimate destination – Everest Base Camp. Every year thousand of trekkers go to Gokyo trek as their side trip during their Everest Base Camp Trek because of the blue lakes of Gokyo valley, Gokyo peak and of course the Sherpa traditions and cultures. It is thought that only trekking Everest Base Camp is incomplete if you does not lengthen your trek across the Gokyo Valley. The panoramic scenario of Mt. Everest is more amazing from Gokyo Valley than that from Everest Kalapathar.
We personally recommend you to choose Everest Base Camp Trek 14 days if you have physically and mentally good health and have limited time in Nepal, since it has shorter itinerary and cheaper price rate than Everest Base Camp Trek Via Gokyo Valley.
Being a challenging and difficult trek, only those trekkers are recommended this trek who are physically fit. However you do not need high experience for this trekking. Lets imagine that you are just standing in the middle of a massif 360 degree round of snow-capped mountain, how do you feel ? We can’t explain the whole beauties and feelings just writing in this page. You will just find if you reaches there. So, just feel free to contact us.
